Be part of the friendship and 5K fun of Girls on the Run (GOTR) ( next fall – COACH! The fall GOTR season will serve teams across the Omaha-Lincoln metro region and we need two to three coaches for every team.

You don’t have to be a runner to be a great GOTR coach. If you are a positive person who wants to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident, you’ll be a great coach!

GOTR combines lessons to foster social skills and character-development with fun running games to train for a 5K run at the end of each eight-week season. Led by two to three trained coaches, teams of 10 to 20 third- through fifth-/sixth-grade girls complete a nationally standardized confidence-building curriculum.

Since its inception with 11 girls and two coaches in September 2003, Girls on the Run of Nebraska has expanded to serve more than 25,000 girls and 3,000 coaches at 100+ sites across the state.
