*In General for Fall 2015, Lessons 9/21/15 through 12/4/15, GOTR 5k on Saturday 12/5/15*

Important Attendance Policy: Participation is a twice a week commitment. Please do not register if you cannot attend both days. The content of the program is more than just running, so attendance is very important to the integrity of the experience for ALL the participants (both the girl who is absent and the team who is missing her). If a participant is absent more than 4 lessons, Girls on the Run of WNC reserves the right to dismiss the participant from the program with no refund of program fees.

How can I sign up my child?
