About

Become a Girls on the Run Coach!

Girls on the Run is a unique , life-changing after-school program that has positively impacted over 6,000 girls in the midlands area. Meeting twice a week in small teams of 8-18 girls, volunteer coaches teach life skills through dynamic, conversation-based lessons and running games. The curricula has been shown to increase self-esteem and improve body image. Learn more by watching this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9_PC-fvdXA

You do not have to be an experienced runner to coach! Most teams meet two days per week in the early afternoon, starting around 2:30 or 3:00 p.m. This is a 10-week program with practices starting February 6. If you'd like to serve as an encouraging role model for girls, contact Jamie Marlow at jamie.marlow@girlsontherun.org for more information.

Sites in Lexington, Kershaw, Richland, and Sumter counties are seeking coaches.
