Long School is excited to announce that we will be offering the Girls on the Run tuition based program this Spring!
The 10 week, 20 lesson GOTR curriculum combines training for a 5K (3.1 mile) running event with lessons that inspire girls to become independent thinkers, enhance their problem solving skills and make healthy decisions. All of this is accomplished through an active collaboration with girls, their parents, school and volunteers.
Long Schools program will begin the week of Feb. 20th, 2012 and end with the 5K race on May 12, 2012.
Participants will meet twice a week after school for approx. 75 - 90 minutes each practice.
On-line registration will take place starting Jan. 30th through Feb. 10, 2012.
The GOTR fee is $150, which includes:
- 20 lessons conducted by GOTR trained coaches along with teachers and volunteers

- a healthy snack at each practice

The Girls On The Run program inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun experienced base curriculum which creatively integrates running.
