Registration Fees

Building confidence and setting young girls down the path of a healthy lifestyle is PRICELESS! However, there are real costs associated with operating a non-profit organization and delivering the Girls on the Run program to over 1,500 girls in Los Angeles County each year. Registration is $295 per girl and includes:

  • 16 ninety-minute sessions  (most cases)
  • Certified GOTR volunteer coaches
  • Curriculum + Lesson Materials
  • Official GOTR T-shirt and Water Bottle
  • 5K Entry
  • 5K Finisher's Medal
  • Seaon Finisher's Medal
  • Post 5K Team Celebration

As noted above, financial assistance is available to qualified participant families and GOTRLA will work with individuals to ensure program fees make GOTR accessible.

Refund Policy

Due to high demand and limited space, program fees will only be fully refunded (less bank fees) if cancellations are requested PRIOR to the first week of practice. Cancellation or withdrawal after the 1st week of practice will NOT be refunded unless medical necessity dictates, accompanying doctors note required.

My child isn't a big runner; is this program for them? OR My child is already a skilled runner; is this program for them?

Yes! We offer much more than a running program, and every participant can benefit from the experience of building confidence through accomplishment while participating in our rich, curriculum-based, age-appropriate, interactive lessons. Expect lots of games, talking, laughing and processing in addition to running at each practice. And know that when we say run, we mean run, walk, roll, skip... just keep moving foward!

What does the program fee include?

Your program registration fee includes all lesson materials, including GOTR curriculum, activity sheets, lap counters and more, a GOTR t-shirt, a bib entry into the season-ending 5K, a finisher's medal, and a GOTR water bottle.

We can't afford the program registration fee, but our child would love to participate. How does the scholarship program work?

Don't let cost stop you from participating! We are committed to making Girls on the Run accessible! Thanks to generous donors and community supporters, program scholarships are available to any family who needs it. The online registration form will walk you through a few questions to find the fee that is right for your family based on a sliding scale. OR call us before registering to discuss options: (626) 590-4770.

When does the season begin?

Practices will begin September 26th. The culminating event will be the 5K on December 4th, with one follow up session after the 5K for team celebrations. More information will be shared by the GOTR staff and team coaches once the season begins.

Do girls need to attend both days each week in order to register?

Yes! Since most of our teams fill up quickly, if your girl will be unable to attend all the sessions, please save room for a girl who can, and consider joining us in a future season when she can enjoy the entire program.

Is there a way for me to sponsor a participant for a season?

Yes! As a mission-driven 501(c)3, Girls on the Run relies on generous donors in order to provide more than $30,000 in program scholarships for families in need. Click here to sponsor a participant this season.
