Our volunteer coaches are the heart & sole of our program! 

Each spring (~March-May) and fall (~Sept-Nov), our coaches lead groups of 8-20 girls (reduced to 5-10 during covid) through our award winning curriculum. For 10 weeks (reduced to 8 during covid), our fully trained coaches (we provide all your training!) meet with their teams twice/week for about 1.5 hours to mentor the girls mentally, emotionally, and physically. Our curriculum lessons are all laid out for you (in other words - no lesson planning!), and teach life-skills in a fun & active way! While discussing topics that build self-confidence, perseverance/grit, guide good decision making, and boost joy, girls are also training for an end-of-season 5k that is fun for everyone! 

This is SO MUCH MORE than a running program (and many of our coaches and girls aren't "runners") - it is a LIFE program!  

Coach registration is open for the upcoming spring season! Learn more & sign up now @ https://www.girlsontherunsv.org/Coach

We anticipate the need for both in-person coaches and 100% virtual coaches.

Please sign up NO LATER THAN Feb 15 for the spring season!

Reach out to Dia Russell, Program Director @ dia.russell@girlsontherun.org with any questions.
