Girls on the Run® is an after-school character development program that uses the power of running to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running. The program combines training for a 5k (3.1 miles) event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts. The goal of the program is to encourage positive emotional, social, mental, spiritual and physical development. The program runs for 10 weeks from September 18 – December 8. GOTR will meet at GES on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 4:00-5:15pm. Registration is now open at gotrcentralmd.org
