Welcome to an awesome and life-changing program
for young girls throughout Birmingham!


Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.Girls on the Run Birmingham is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 200 councils across the United States and Canada

Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

We use the power of running to provide girls with the tools to:

  • Celebrate their bodies
  • Honor their voices
  • Recognize their gifts, and
  • Activate their personal power

Girls on the Run combines training for a 5k (3.1 miles) event with healthy living education. We use exercise, positive reinforcement, and encouraging role models to help girls discover the confidence they need in those critical pre-teen years and beyond. Through interactive activities such as running, playing games and discussing important issues, participants learn how to celebrate being their unique and real selves.

More than a running program…We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams!
