Coach

Serving as a coach is one of the most rewarding ways to get involved with Girls on the Run. Our volunteer coaches lead their teams through the Girls on the Run-developed curriculum, stretching and running activities, and training for the end-of-season 5K. You do not need to be a runner or a competitive athlete. Successful coaches need only serve as a role model for girls by showing up prepared and on time, listening attentively, and by demonstrating a positive attitude! This position works closely with the Girls on the Run staff and requires a commitment of 2-3 hours per week for the 10 week season, with additional time required for the GOTR 5K race. We need an average of 500 volunteer coaches per season to deliver our program in Northern Virginia. We can’t do it without YOU.
