We happy to announce that Marigold will be hosting a Girls on the Run team this spring for girls in 3rd, 4th, or 5th grades.

Registration will open January 21 at 6:00 AM on a FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED basis and will stay open until we reach a full team of 15 or February 5 - whichever comes first.

Girls on the Run is WAY more than a running program. Through dynamic, conversation-based lessons and running games taught by certified Girls on the Run coaches, GOTR is a safe, supportive place for your girl to build her confidence, find friends, and learn life-skills to help her navigate her world.

Meeting twice a week in small teams of 8-15 girls, running is used to teach girls how to set a goal, slowly work toward it and accomplish it while encouraging lifelong health and fitness and building confidence through accomplishment..

Volunteer coaches follow a research-based curriculum that covers topics such as:

*how to turn negative self-talk into positive self-talk

*how to understand their emotions

*how to choose good friends and be a good friend

*how to show gratitude and express empathy

*how to deal with gossip and handle peer pressure


At the season's conclusion, the girls will complete a 5K (3.1 miles) fun run Saturday, May 9 at Turtle Bay in Redding. Completing the 5K gives the girls a tangible sense of achievement as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals.

The result - making the seemingly impossible, possible and teaching girls that they CAN

Our spring 2020 season will begin the week of February 17, 2020

Teams are limited to 15 girls

REGISTRATION WILL OPEN January 21@6 AM(first come, first served)

Registration fee is on a sliding scale based on Household Income: $25-$125

Financial Assistance is also available for families affected by the Camp Fire

Be sure to register your girl as soon as registration opens to guarantee her spot. To register your girl and for more information, visit: www.gotrNorthState.org. The program fee includes the ten-week program (20 lessons + all program materials), registration for the end of season 5K event, a shirt and finisher's medal. Have your girl grab her running shoes and join the Girls on the Run team! Questions:, call 530-636-0786 or email info@gotrnorthstate.org
