Girls on the Run Opens Registration

Girls on the Run Greater Boston (GOTRGB) has announced the launch of its fall 2020 season, ensuring that Boston area girls can stay active and healthy during the pandemic. Twice weekly, small teams of girls in grades three - eight are led by trained coaches through the research-based curriculum that uses running and other physical activities to build girls’ confidence, connection, and resilience.
     Girls who want to enroll but who do not have a site in their community can still do so virtually. GOTRGB has created virtual teams so that all girls anywhere in the Boston area can register to participate, regardless of school district or financial circumstances.
     For the 2020-2021 school year, GOTRGB is offering a flexible programming model with virtual options to accommodate the changing and unpredictable school year due to the pandemic. Registration for the season is open at register-now
     If schools and sites are able to meet in person, GOTR after-school programming will take place in person with strict adherence to safety measures set forth by public health authorities, including physical distancing modifications. For schools and sites operating virtually, GOTR will be run by trained coaches in a safe virtual space, with lessons that mirror in-person Girls on the Run sessions. Virtual programs will include physical activity and social-emotional learning, providing girls with an opportunity to build meaningful connections with their peers and caring adult role models.
     Girls on the Run Greater Boston is an independent nonprofit organization affiliated with Girls on the Run International, which has 200 chapters across the United States and has served more than two million girls in its 24-year history. Learn more at
