FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GIRLS ON THE RUN LAS VEGAS COMPLETES SPRING VIRTUAL SEASON, ANNOUNCES FALL REGISTRATION NOW OPEN
Fall 2021 program available at more than 30 participating sites.
Photos and video are now available from the celebratory team 5Ks that concluded Girls on the Run Las Vegas’ 2021 spring season. Owing to the COVID pandemic, GOTR did not hold a community-wide 5K this spring; rather, individual teams celebrated with their own 5Ks at schools and parks across the valley.
For girls in grades 3 through 8 who want to participate in the fall 2021 season, registration is already open. The Fall 2021 program features an evidence-based, ten-week curriculum provided by Girls On The Run International. Now through Sept. 28, girls in grades 3 through 8 can register for the program through dozens of participating sites.
Participants will meet in-person twice a week for 90-minute sessions conducted by trained GOTR coaches. For those who cannot participate in the in-person 10-week course, there will be one virtual 8-week course for each age group in addition to four non-school based sites. The program registration fee includes 20 virtual lessons, a bound journal for weekly check-ins, a program t-shirt, a water bottle and the entry fee for the end-of-season 5K.
More than 600 girls across the Las Vegas valley participate each year in the Girls On The Run Las Vegas program, designed to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident while creatively integrating running. At the end of the season, all participating girls, running buddies and community supporters will participate in the 5K Community Celebration at University of Nevada, Las Vegas taking place on Dec. 4.
The program curriculum dates and times vary for each school and in-person teams can have up to 20 girls for in-person and 12 for virtual teams.
Early bird discounts are available until Sunday, August 8. For more information, visit GirlsOnTheRunLV.org.
