Girls on the Run is a life-changing, character development program for girls in 3rd through 8th grade.  Our mission is to educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living.  We use the power of running to provide girls with the tools to:

  • Celebrate their bodies
  • Honor their voices
  • Recognize their gifts, and
  • Activate their personal power

Girls on the Run Orlando is an affiliate council of Girls on the Run International, founded in 1996, by Molly Barker, a visionary, Ironman triathlete. Today, there are nearly 160 locations across the U.S. & Canada, with new locations added each year.  Girls on the Run combines training for a 5k (3.1 miles) event with healthy living education. We use exercise, positive reinforcement, and encouraging role models to help girls discover the confidence they need in those critical pre-teen years and beyond.

Many thanks to the Track Shack Fitness Club for their generous support of our Girls on the Run Orlando Council!
