Girls on the Run Vermont’s registration for its spring program is now open statewide. Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based, positive youth development program that inspires girls in third through eighth grade to be joyful, healthy and confident.

Each team will meet twice a week for 90 minutes after school and participate in research-based lessons that use dynamic discussions and fun movement games to teach life skills. The season will culminate with two statewide 5k events, one on June 4 at the Champlain Valley Expo in Essex Junction and the other on June 11 at the Manchester Recreation Fields.
The program fee for the season is $115 and financial aid is available to those who qualify. The program fee includes registration for the end of season 5k event, a shirt, journal, cinch sack, water bottle and more. Information about the program and registration can be found at gotrvt.org.
