Registration Fees

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 1000 girls in the Long Island area each year. Registration is $225 per girl and includes:

  • 16 practices conducted by certified GOTR volunteer coaches
  • Curriculum and lesson materials
  • Official GOTR Program t-shirt
  • 5K Registration fee
  • 5K Medal
  • Confidence to last a lifetime

Please note, an additional 5K registration fee will be due midway through the season for each participant's Running Buddy and any additional family or community runners.

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, Journal, activity sheets, a GOTR t-shirt, registration for the end-of-season 5K, and a finisher 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, and we can also provide appropriate running shoes and attire if necessary. The online registration form will walk you through a few questions to find the fee that is right for your family based on a sliding scale.

When does the Summer Session begin?

The GOTR Summer mini-session will be held August 1-5, 2022 and girls will meet at the GOTR Long Island offices inside Eisenhower Park, East Meadow.  The following week will be used for rain/make up dates, if needed. 

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 $60,000 in program scholarships annually for families in need. Click here to sponsor a participant this season.
