Online Registration – Girls on the Run Greater Houston engages in a lottery based online registration system to ensure a fair and equal process for all girls. Parents/Guardians are able to sign their girl up online any time between August 21st – September 8th.
To sign up for the lottery online, please have the following information available:
When you register your girl, you will be asked to submit a form of payment. Each team can have a maximum of 15 girls. Due to the high demand for our programs, if too many girls register for a site, a lottery system will randomly generate the final team roster. If there are more spaces available on the team than girls registered, everyone will be placed on the team and the remaining spaces will be open for first come, first serve registration.
Girl Placement Day will occur on Monday, September 11th, this is when the online system will randomly select girls that signed up for a designated location.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
My girl isn't a big runner; is this program for her? OR My girl is already a skilled runner. Is this program for her?
Yes! We are much more than a running program, and every girl can benefit from the experience of building confidence through accomplishment while participating in our rich, curriculum-based, age-appropriate, interactive lessons. Expect lots of games, talking, laughing and processing in addition to running at each practice.
What does the program fee include?
Though our actual cost per girl is more than $200, through generous donors we're able to subsidize the cost to families, and the program fee for the 10-week, 20-lesson season is $165. Your program registration fee includes all lesson materials, including GOTR curriculum, activity sheets, lap counters and more, a GOTR t-shirt, a GOTR race shirt, a bib entry into the season-ending 5k, a finisher's medal, and a gift at the end of each season.
We can't afford the program registration fee but our daughter would love to participate. How does the scholarship program work?
Don't let cost stop you from participating! We'd love to have your daughter involved and we are committed to making Girls on the Run accessible to all girls. Thanks to generous donors and community supporters, program scholarships are available to any girl who needs it, and we can also provide running shoes and clothing to girls in need. The online registration form will walk you through a few questions to find the school fee that is right for your family based on a sliding scale.
When does the 10-week season begin?
Practices will begin in September. The culminating event will be the 5k on Saturday, December 9th. More information will be shared by the GOTR staff and by your girl's coaches once the season begins.
When does Fall Registration open and close?
Registration opens on Monday August 21st at 6pm and closes on Friday September 8th at midnight.
Do girls need to attend both days each week in order to register?
Yes! Since most of our teams fill up quickly, if your girl will be unable to attend all the sessions, please save room for a girl who can, and consider joining us in a future season when she can enjoy the entire program.
Is there a way for me to sponsor another girl's participation this season?
Yes! As a mission-driven 501(c)3, Girls on the Run relies on generous donors in order to provide more than $140,000 each season in program scholarships for girls in need. Click here to sponsor a girl's participation this season.
How large are the teams?
8-15 girls are on every team. We require a minimum of 8 girls and allow a maximum of 15 girls per team. If more than 15 girls register for a team, then a "lottery" is run to randomly select 15 girls to make the team. If a site has high demand, we do allow more than one team per site. Please reach out to Molly or Jamie to learn more!
What if my girl is interested, but there isn't a convenient site location?
Consider starting a site at your daughter's school or local community center! Learn more here.
