Help change lives and become a Girls on the Run Coach for the fall 2021 season



Are you passionate about our local youth and encouraging girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident? Consider becoming a Girls on the Run Coach this fall!


Girls on the Run is a life-changing program for girls in 3rd through 5th grade. The program combines self-esteem enhancing workouts that encourage positive emotional, social, and physical development with training for the GOTR 5k Run/Walk. Crossing the finish line is a defining moment when girls realize that the seemingly impossible IS possible!

Coaches do not have to be runners themselves! The only requirements are enthusiasm and commitment to the healthy development of young girls and themselves.


Over the course of 8-weeks, you’ll meet with the girls twice a week for 90 minutes. A scripted curriculum is provided to guide you through each lesson.


As a Girls on the Run Coach, you’ll help girls:

  • Accept themselves and others

  • Stand up to bullies

  • Develop a positive self-image

  • Make healthier choices

  • Confidently chase their dreams

  • Change the world


Girls on the Run Fall 2021 season starts September 27, and they are currently recruiting coaches. To learn more about this amazing opportunity, visit their website or contact Jennifer Thorsell at (803) 620-3036 or Jennifer.Thorsell@girlsontherun.org.
