Running program for girls starts Aug. 3


Girl Scouts Western PA are offering girls in grades 3-8 an 8-week running program to train for the Her Times 5K! Girls of all fitness levels are welcome!

The program will run on Saturdays, starting Aug. 3,  from 10 to 11 a.m. for eight week leading up to the race. Participants meet at Presque Isle State Park’s ranger station (about two miles into the park on the right).

Girls will learn basic technique while building positive self-image.  Experts will also provide information to girls about avoiding injuries, proper hydration and nutrition, goal-setting and more.

If you are interested in registering your daughter for this unique non-competitive program,  contact Courtney Soder at 1-800-248-3355 ext. 1430 or email at Cost is just $20 and participants will receive a sweet discount on their Her Times 5K registration fee!

P.S. Parents do not have to stay for the program, so ….you can drop off your daughter and go for a run yourself!
