Girls on the Run is coming back to Ramsey for its second fall season, and registration for local girls is now open.
The program, which runs for 12-week segments in the fall and spring, pairs volunteer coaches with pre-teen girls. Coaches lead the girls through physical, social, emotional and mental development while training them to participate in a 5K.
The local chapter of GOTR is offering two Girls on the Run teams, which is for girls in third through fifth grade, and one Girls on Track team, which is for sixth through eighth graders.
All teams will meet from 4 to 5:30 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday this fall at the Smith School in Ramsey. Registration is open to all local students, not just those from Ramsey. For details and registration www.gotrnjn.org.
