Girls on the Run uses 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® combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running 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.  Through interactive activities such as running, playing games, and discussing important issues, participants learn how to celebrate being their unique and real selves.  Our hope is that every girl believes and can say, “I belong just the way I am.”

Girls on the Run® of Greater Sacramento is an Affiliate/Independent Council of Girls on the Run International®, which has a network of 160+ locations across the United States and Canada, with new locations added each year.
