Registration is now open for the Girls on the Run program at Kent Gardens. By using a curriculum that creatively integrates running with life lessons, Girls on the Run supports girls in grades 3-6 in developing the confidence and character they need to become strong and healthy young adults.

The season will run from March 6th through May 19th, with program-wide 5K races on May 20th and 21st. We meet afterschool from 3:45-4:45 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The standard fee is $175, but we also offer military and sibling discounts as well as financial aid for qualifying families.
