Registration Fee Guide - GOTR

Registration Fee Guide

Building confidence and setting young girls down the path of a healthy lifestyle is priceless. However, there are real costs associated with operating a non-profit organization and delivering the Girls on the Run program to approximately 6,000 girls each year.

The standard program fee per season is $195 per girl, and includes the following items:

  • Participation in a 10-week, 20 lesson program conducted by certified GOTR© coaches
  • Materials used by the coaches over the course of the program, including the curriculum
  • Official GOTR T-shirt & medal
  • 5K Registration fee
  • Coaches training and background checks

To help girls with financial need, we offer site and individual scholarships.  New scholarship sites are approved at the start of each season.  School scholarships are based on the amount of Free and Reduced Lunch (FRL) percentage at the school:

Registration Type FRL % at School Price
Full-Price Registration  Less than 30% $195
Partial Scholarship 30% - 59.9% $95
Race Scholarship 60% - 79.9% $45
Full Scholarship 80% or Greater $25


Individuals may also apply for additional financial aid. Please see below for more on how to apply for scholarships.

To help girls with financial need, we offer site-based and individual scholarships. School fees are based on the amount of Free and Reduced Lunch (FRL) percentage at the school.

We also offer individual scholarships.  Please download and complete the Scholarship Application and send to [email protected].

Girls on the Run does not ask for income verification and relies on the honor system. Please pay what you can to help us keep programming possible for all participants.


My girl isn't a big runner; is this program for her? OR My girl is already a skilled runner. Is this program for her?

Yes! We are much more than a running program, and every participant can benefit from the experience of building confidence through accomplishment while participating in our rich, curriculum-based, age-appropriate, interactive lessons. Expect lots of games, talking, laughing and processing in addition to running at each practice. And know that when we say run, we mean run, walk, skip, roll or push, just as long as you are moving foward!

What does the program fee include?

Your program registration fee includes all lesson materials, including GOTR curriculum, activity sheets, lap counters, traind and background checked coaches and more! Additionally, each participant receives a GOTR t-shirt, entry into the season-ending 5K, and a medal. 

We can't afford the program registration fee, but our child would love to participate. How does the scholarship program work?

Don't let cost stop you from participating. We are committed to making Girls on the Run accessible to all who want to particpate! Thanks to generous donors and community supporters, program scholarships are available to any family who needs it. Please contact [email protected] to learn more.

When does the 10-week season begin?

Our spring season started in March and registration is now closed.

Fall registration will open in August and practices will begin in early September. The culminating event for fall will be in November. More information will be shared by the GOTR staff and by your girl's coaches.

Do girls need to attend both days each week in order to register?

Yes! Since most of our teams fill up quickly, if your girl will be unable to attend all the sessions, please save room for a girl who can, and consider joining us in a future season when she can enjoy the entire program.

Is there a way for me to sponsor a participant for a season?

Yes! As a mission-driven 501(c)3, Girls on the Run relies on generous donors in order to provide more than $400,000 annually in program scholarships for families in need. Please visit our Partner page to learn more.
