Girls On The Run!


Hello, families of Panther girls grades 3-6!!!

Registration is NOW OPEN for the Girls on the Run program at Oakton Elementary School!!

*Registration runs from August 22 through Sept. 19th.

Our goal is to accept 40 girls this season!  If more than 40 girls register, we will go to a lottery system.

The standard fee is $175, but GOTR also offers military and sibling discounts, as well as financial aid for qualifying families.
