Girls on the Run is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.

OUR PROGRAMS

Our council started when two women decided they wanted to become Girls on the Run coaches. After visiting the Girls on the Run International website and discovering there was not a council for St. Mary’s and Charles Counties, they decided to start a new independent council. After more than a year of planning, Girls on the Run Southern Maryland was founded by Kristine Hall in 2017. We look forward to serving our community in our inaugural season this fall with three sites.

Girls on the Run International was established in 1996 in Charlotte, North Carolina by Molly Barker. What started with thirteen girls in one school has grown to over 200 councils in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. With the help of almost 100,000 volunteers, Girls on the Run served nearly 180,000 girls in 2015, including our millionth girl! Girls on the Run continues to grow and currently hosts more than 350 end-of-season 5K events across the United States, making the Girls on the Run 5K series the largest in the country. Girls on the Run has also expanded to include middle school girls through Heart & Sole, a program dedicated to the unique needs of adolescent girls.
