We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

Me + Relationships + Community

Meeting twice a week in small teams of 8-20 girls, we teach life skills through fun, engaging lessons that celebrate the joy of movement. The 24-lesson curriculum is taught by certified Girls on the Run® coaches and includes three parts: understanding ourselves, valuing relationships and teamwork and understanding how we connect with and shape the world at large. Over the course of the program, girls will develop and improve competence, feel confidence in who they are, develop strength of character, respond to others and oneself with care and compassion, create positive connections with peers and adults, and make a meaningful contribution to community and society.

Power through Service

Acknowledging that accomplishment has many flavors, each team creates and executes a local community service project. This experience demonstrates to girls the unimaginable strength that comes from helping others.

Up and Running

At each season's conclusion, the girls and their running buddies complete a 5k running event. This year our Girls on the Run Utah Spring 5K race will take place on Saturday, May 31st at Sugar House Park. This is a large, community wide event and an inspiring gathering of friends and family. Completing a 5k gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals. The results are the same—making the seemingly impossible, possible.

Simple, engaging and extraordinary. The result? Healthy, confident girls who can.
