Welcome to Girls on the Run of the Greater Chesapeake – a life-changing, non-profit positive youth development program for girls in 3rd through 8th grade. Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
Girls on the Run of the Greater Chesapeake is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International, founded in 1996, by Molly Barker, a visionary Ironman triathlete. Today there are more than 190 locations across the United States and Canada, with new locations added every year.
Girls on the Run combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running event with healthy living education. Our programs instill self-esteem and strong values through health education, life skills development, mentoring relationships, and physical training – all of which are accomplished through an active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff, and the community.
