coach a team

Each season Girls on the Run Capital Region identifies and selects a dynamic group of coaches to lead each of our teams of 8-16 girls. Coaches are parents, teachers, school administrators, college students and other community members who are committed to developing and celebrating our girls.

be a mentor

Want to make a connection with one of our girls?

Our Running Buddy Program is very popular, especially for those who work during the day. Runners, walkers, men and women over 18 are welcome.

We match you with one of our girls who you mentor through weekly notes. Then you run together at the Practice 5K and the Final 5K Celebration.

This virtual mentoring relationship has a positive impact on our girls. Besides, who doesn't love getting mail every week?
