How to start a site

  1. Read through Starting a New Site packet thoroughly.
  2. Ensure that you agree to and understand the content.
  3. Ensure you have achieved all aspects of the site responsibilities/readiness to participate criteria.
  4. Fill out a Site Application.
  • Site application deadlines: 
    To start a site for the fall season, applications are due by June 1.
    To start a site for the spring season, applications are due by December 1

We will start accepting applications for the Spring 2016 season on October 1, 2015.  To register your school for a Spring 2016 site click HERE.

Once the application has been preliminarily approved, Girls on the Run Sedgwick County seeks to meet with the site liaison, other coaches and ideally a school administrator, at the location to review the space and to answer any questions about the program or at least have a conference call.

Note that GOTR-Sedgwick County is rapidly expanding and doing our best to accommodate as many new site requests as possible. We are somewhat limited by funding and staff capacity, therefore we can’t guarantee a site will be able to start simply because they completed an application. Please be aware that starting and maintaining a Girls on the Run site is a serious commitment for volunteers and a time intensive endeavor.

Please direct any questions you may have to Christy Thomas at (316) 461-4516 or

Thank you for your interest!
