Learn. Live. Dream. Run

Girls on the Run (GOTR) is coming to Remington Elementary and Middle Schools! GOTR is a self-esteem fitness program for 3rd-5th grade girls.

  •  Discover the benefits of consistent physical exercise and good nutrition
  •  Learn the advantage of positive peer support
  •  Learn to stand up for herself in a healthy manner
  •  Improve her body image and strengthen her sense of  identity
  •  Prepare to participate in a 5K run/walk event

Each 10-week session includes:

  •  An innovative, nationally-successful curriculum
  •  Warm-ups, running/walking workouts and games
  •  Relevant topics designed especially for girls
  •  Two sessions each week
  •  Healthy treats and snacks after lessons

GOTR will meet on Tuesday AND Thursday from 3:45 – 5:15 at RES. 5th grade girls will be bussed to the Elementary and parents will pick girls up at RES after the session. Sessions begin the week of February 24, 2014 and will end with the 5k event on Saturday, May 10. A mandatory parent meeting for all registered girls and their parents will be held on Thursday, Feb. 20th at 7:00 pm at Remington Elementary.


Each GOTR program participant will need a running buddy (female only) for the practice 5k (Lesson 16) and the end of season 5k. Running Buddies DO NOT need to attend practice sessions. Running buddies will have the opportunity to register for the race at the parent meeting with a special discount.
