Register Your Girl

When are the lessons?

The lesson days and times are site specific. The program meets for 75-90 minutes, 2 days per week, for 10 weeks, ending with the finale of the End of Session Celebratory Girls on the Run 5k.

  • Below are program calendars that were established using Buncombe County School's calendar. Check with your site contact or head coach for calendar specific to your program location.

*In general for Spring 2016, Lessons 3/7/16 through 5/20/16, GOTR 5k on Saturday 5/21/16*

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?

Girl registration for Spring 2016 will be February 15th until February 26th, with the exception of our sites that are on a BALANCED/FLEX school year calendar AND some other sites that are starting early due to teacher workdays/school closings. Those sites will begin registration and lessons on special timelines, so please check the Locations page for further details.

***NOTE: Team Sizes are LIMITED. Registration for all teams will be by LOTTERY, with priority given to registrants previously waitlisted. Registration will close on Friday 2/26, and the lottery will be processed. All registrants will be notified on Friday 2/26 of their status (on the team or waitlist).
