Mission Statement

We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.


Girls on the Run of Central Ohio (GOTRCO) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) that was founded in 2008 to empower girls in central Ohio as they face new challenges from middle childhood through adolescence, from 3 rd through 8 th grades.
