Girls on the Run (GOTR)

GOTR is a national program offered at Mountain School. We inspire girls to recognize their inner strength and celebrate what makes them one of a kind. Trained coaches lead small teams through our research-based curricula which includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the course of the ten-week program, girls develop essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates with girls positively impacting their communities through a service project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K event. 

Days: Mondays and Wednesdays
Time: 3:00-4:30
Location: Ponderosa Trails Park
Period: Aug. 29 – Nov. 9
