What does the fee include


The actual cost for a girl or boy to participate in Girls on the Run or STRIDE will be published at a later date. However thanks to the generosity of our community and sponsors we are able to charge a reduced fee of $70. Our registration fee helps cover the licensing fees paid to Girls on the Run International and the Brandywine Valley YMCA for STRIDE, insurance, training & support provided to the volunteer site liaisons and coaches at each site, and the printing & supplies (markers, balls, jump ropes, cones, etc.) used for each lesson. Scholarships are available. Running shoes may be available to families in need.


Each participant will receive:


  • 20 ninety minute lessons conducted by a certified GOTR or STRIDE coach
  • Lesson handouts and running incentives
  • An official program t-shirt
  • A program water bottle
  • 5K entry fee
  • Finisher's medal
  • End of season awards and celebration
