Girls On The Run Registration Information

GOTR Lottery Brochure

Attention Families & Girls:

Popular program for girls at Sonia Sotomayor Elementary!

Mission:  To educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living

Girls on the Run is a national non-profit organization that uses a researched curriculum of lessons, games, activities, and non-competitive running exercises to teach life lessons and to enhance self-esteem and build confidence in young girls!  Our lessons include topics in positive thinking, being a good friend, making healthy decisions, standing up for oneself, gossiping and bullying issues, healthy eating and positive body image, setting goals, understanding diversity and community awareness – and many other topics important to girls of this age!  We end our GOTR season with a fun 5K run including all of the girls participating in GOTR/HS in the Sioux Empire.


The lottery registration period will be open from Monday, January 8 through Monday, February 5.  On Tuesday, February 6, participants will be selected via lottery.  This selection is conducted via the Race Planner registration system which randomly selects team participants.  Families are automatically notified via email of the selection and the registration fee is automatically billed.  If slots remain after the selection, they will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.
