Girls on the Run is so much more than running! We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident by using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running.
Girls on the Run strives to help every girl activate her limitless potential and ensure that she is free to pursue her dreams boldly.
Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity-based, positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-5th grades. Meeting in small teams, trained volunteer coaches inspire girls to build confidence and other essential life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and physical activity. Our lessons focus on building girls’ social, emotional, and physical skills while encouraging healthy habits for life. Each season ends with a joyful, non-competitive, celebratory 5K event. This culmination gives girls a tangible sense of accomplishment and the confidence to be the author of their own stories.
Girls on the Run of South Dakota is an Affiliate Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 200 councils across the United States and Canada.
