At Girls on the Run, we inspire girls to live a joyful, healthy, confident life, using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Over our 10-week season, thousands of girls across Kansas City are mentored by our volunteer coaches, learning & building life skills as they train for our 5K!
This is a family-friendly, community event that celebrates all of the hard work of our amazing girls, coaches, teachers, parents and community members!
