Hi! I belong to a free women's run group call She Runs This Town (PH/WC Chapter). A lot of running events scheduled for this month and next are cancelled due to COVID-19 and converted into virtual races. We are looking at scheduling our virtual event(s) in June on a weekend, maybe even later, on the Iron Horse Trail or Canal Trail. Would Girls on The Run of those (surrounding) areas be interested in cheering us on or even participating? Would be a great opportunity of female empowerment and support.
Where do we find the results from Yesterday's run? So glad the rain held back and thanks to all that made that happen. Sugar fyi.

Jazmin (451) and Gigi (450) had an amazing time on Sunday! They are still talking about the whole experience after 2 years of trying to get into Girls on the run they finally got in this year! I'm very proud of this achievement they accomplished as their last year together in Elementary school! Gigi is off to middle school next year! She Hope's to be able to run again next year but first she needs some rest! 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

Hi! I registered this morning for the Golden Gate Park run in May and I don’t think I selected where to pick up the shirt and other info. Is there a way to check that? I’d be picking up the day of the race. Thank you!

We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Girls on the Run of the Bay Area provides an innovative running program for girls ages 8 to 13 that uses experiential learning to teach very specific and well-defined social and personal skills.

Building Confident, Healthy Girls

We equip girls with skills to lead healthy, empowered lives, with a hands-on, customized curriculum that teaches life skills and strategies 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.

Studies show the program has a long term impact on the girls in self-confidence, developing healthy relationships and feeling good about themselves.

We have two seasons - Fall and Spring. You can get involved by coaching, becoming a running buddy or donating to help us share this wonderful program with more girls in the Bay Area!
