GOTR Knoxville runner


Girls on the Run is more than a running program.

We use running to inspire and motivate girls, encourage lifelong health and fitness, and build confidence through accomplishment. Our curriculum is designed to combine training for a 5K run with lessons that inspire them to recognize and honor their individual strengths and talents and to celebrate their inner selves. For most girls, the culminating event of the non-competitive 5K is the biggest physical challenge they have accomplished and gives them a tangible sense if achievement.

We offer Girls on the Run and Girls on Track programs in five counties within greater Knoxville: Knox, Sevier, Loudon, Anderson, and Blount.
