Inspiring Our Children to Be Healthy

Girls on the Run Greater Richmond is featured in the September 27th issue of Urban Views Weekly highlighting Childhood Obesity and ways that our children can get active and healthy!

Inspiring Our Children to Be Healthy

Full Story published at Urban Views Weekly

Sometimes it can be hard to eat healthy when all the yummy snack foods are so enjoyable. However, when you look at our youth and the rate of obesity, our consumption and the type of foods we eat has to get better. The New England Journal of Medicine states that, “for the first time in two centuries, the current generation of children in America may have shorter life expectancies than their parents, according to a new report, which contends that the rapid rise in childhood obesity, if left unchecked, could shorten life spans by as much as five years.”

We are looking for our Fall 2017 Girls on the Run Coaches! Applications are currently being accepted!

Each season Girls on the Run of Greater Richmond recruits and selects a dynamic group of coaches to lead each of our teams of 10-20 girls. Coaches are parents, teachers, school administrators, college students and other community members who are committed to developing and celebrating our girls.

GOTR coaches are enthusiastic, dedicated, and positive women and men of all different backgrounds!  Some are athletes and some are not; many have never coached before.  All are committed to empowering girls with valuable life lessons.  Coaches must have availability on weekday afternoons, twice per week over a 12-week fall  season. We are able to take a limited amount of assistant coaches who can commit to 1-day a week for an entire season.


  • Build the girls’ self-esteem and educate and inspire them to live healthy lives.
  • Create a fun and uplifting atmosphere that inspires the girls to enjoy running and the lessons from the program.
  • Get the girls to move their bodies!  Running, skipping, hopping or leaping!
  • Achieve 100% participation rate at season culminating 5k.


  • Twelve-week programs are offered each fall and spring. Coaches can commit to just one season.
  • Practices are twice per week and last 1.5 hours each right after school.
  • A program will consist of  three coaches and 10 – 15 girls.
  • Commitment and consistency are critical to the success of the GOTR program.
