We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity-based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-5th grades. We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

Girls on the Run of Sioux Falls is an Affiliate Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 200 councils across the United States and Canada.

We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.

Girls on the Run honors its core values. We strive to:

  • Recognize our power and responsibility to be intentional in our decision making
  • Embrace our differences and find strength in our connectedness
  • Express joy, optimism and gratitude through our words, thoughts and actions
  • Nurture our physical, emotional and spiritual health
  • Lead with an open heart and assume positive intent
  • Stand up for ourselves and others

Girls on the Run is currently comprised of over 200 councils across the United States and Canada. We want girls to have the opportunity to participate in Girls on the Run wherever they live.

Join us by making an investment in the life of a girl today! Each season Girls on the Run and Heart & Sole has a dynamic group of coaches that volunteer their time to guide and mentor girls so that they are prepared to become happy, healthy, self-confident adolescents and adults.
