About Us

Girls on the Run Greater Oregon believes that EVERY GIRL is inherently FULL OF POWER and POTENTIAL. By knowing they are the leaders of their lives, these are the girls who WILL CHANGE THE WORLD. Practices offer girls a safe space to process their emotions, make friends and nurture their holistic health.  

Meeting twice a week in small teams, we teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing healthy relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large. 

We use running to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. The season concludes with a celebratory 5K event. Completing a 5K gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. 

Girls on the Run programming is designed to foster new, positive relationships between peers, and we strive to create an environment inclusive of participants with varying physical abilities, cultural identities, and gender identities. We use the word “girl” in the gender expansive sense of the word and welcome the participation of youth that identify as girls, gender expansive, or gender non-conforming.
