Girls on the Run of Silicon Valley started in 2002 with just one school and one team of girls. Our amazing volunteer coaches,
Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based, positive youth development program for girls in 3rd through 8th grades. Each season, teams across Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, and Monterey counties meet twice a week for eight weeks to learn to celebrate their unique selves, honor their voices, recognize their gifts and activate their personal power. The season culminates in the annual Girls on the Run 5K, where girls accomplish a goal that for many once seemed impossible. At Girls on the Run, the finish line is just the beginning, as our ultimate goal is to provide the girls with tools and resources that develop their ability to think critically, a skill that will serve them well for a lifetime.
We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
