Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run Louisville inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum, which creatively integrates running.

Girls on the Run Louisville is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-5th grade. We teach life skills 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. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

Over a period of 10-12 weeks, girls in the 3rd through 5th grade throughout Jefferson County participate in a unique and innovative after-school program. Designed to allow every girl to recognize her inner strength, the Girls on the Run Louisville curriculum inspires girls to define their lives on their own terms. Throughout the season, the girls make new friends, build their confidence and celebrate all that makes them unique.

The Girls on the Run Louisville lessons encourage positive emotional, social, mental and physical development.  Participants explore and discuss their own beliefs around experiences and challenges girls face at this age.  They also develop important strategies and skills to help them navigate life experiences. We start with helping the girls get a better understanding of who they are and what’s important to them.  Then, we look at the importance of teamwork and healthy relationships. And, finally, the girls explore how they can positively connect with and shape their community.
