Although school has just begun, Girls on the Run of Nebraska (GOTR, is already knee-deep in planning for the spring 2024 season, and they want YOU to be a part of it. GOTR seeks coaches and sites across the state for the season that will begin in late February.

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 10-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 24,000 girls and 3,000 coaches at 100+ sites across the state.
