Girls on the Run

Girls on the RunĀ® 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 of the Rockies is an Independent Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 200 councils across the 50 States and the District of Columbia. Program Registration for Girls Opens February 3rd. To register go to http://girlsontherunrockies.org/our-program/registration/. The registration cost per person is $170. Season Starts: Week of March 2nd (practice will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays after school until 5:00). Program Registration Closes: March 13th. The final race will be the Colfax 5K at City Park on Saturday, May 16th. In addition, we are looking for motivated coaches to help with Girls on the Run this Spring (no running experience necessary). The coaches each volunteer for one practice a week. Please reach out to Alexia Eslan at lentza@hotmail.com or 303-847-5582 if you would like to volunteer or for any questions. We hope you join us for this great opportunity!
