Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a wonderful and popular 10 week program for 3rd and 4th grade girls. The girls train for a celebratory 5k run through interactive lessons that encourage positive physical and social-emotional development. Volunteer coaches (usually Romona parents) are trained by the Girls on the Run organization and run 2 weekly 75 minutes practices which are held right after school at Romona. There is a fall season and a spring season. More information is HERE
When and Where: Practice sessions are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Sept 11-Nov 15th from 3:15- 4:30 pm at Romona (exceptions: we don’t meet on no-school days). The celebratory 5k will be held Nov 17.
The cost, set by the GOTR organization, is $205 per girl and includes a t-shirt and the 5K registration fee. Each girl is required to have an adult running buddy register for the 5K; the buddy’s cost is approx. $35
