Girls on the Run® is a life-changing,
character development program
for girls in 3rd through 8th grade.
We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
Girls on the Run of Butte County is an independent council affiliated with Girls on the Run International, founded in 1996, by Molly Barker, a visionary, Ironman triathlete. Today, there more than 200 councils 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.
