Program Structure

Girls on the Run programs are based on activities that function specifically to enhance the learning process.

Each meeting is structured as follows:

  • The session begins with a getting-on-board and a warm-up activity that bring the girls’ focus onto the day’s topic.
  • The warm-up is followed by a stretching routine that allows for a topic-related question and answer time.
  • Then, during the workout period, the girls participate in a variety of running activities that utilize a game or a team goal.
  • Afterwards, cool-down stretching is with combined a review and discussion of the day’s lesson that encourages participant questions.
  • Each session closes with positive words from the girls’ coach regarding individual and group behaviors.

GOTR Nashville will continue to offer Fall and Spring programs, and hopes to expand to more locations. The best way to bring GOTR or GOT to your daughter’s school is to volunteer with the existing programs!
