Girls on the Run will begin the season on September 12, 2016, and run through the third week in November. Our teams consist of 8 to 17 girls, that meet twice each week for 90 minutes a session, and are led by three fully-trained coaches. Most teams begin meeting at about 3:00 or 4:00 pm. As a volunteer trained coach, you must be at least 18 years old, be available 10 minutes prior to the start time, and available for BOTH practices per week. Mandatory coach training is Saturday, August 27 from 12:00-5:00pm or Sunday, August 28 from 12:00-5:00pm. For questions about Girls on the Run, please call Sarah Dowell (217) 234-9494.
