Girls on the Run of Alachua County

About Us

Girls on the Run is an international organization with over 240 councils in the United States. Girls on the Run of Alachua County (GOTRAC) was established in the fall of 2016 and has had amazing growth over the last seven years. This year we served over 400 girls in Alachua County at over 25 sites. Our mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experienced-based curriculum which creatively integratges running. Our program is designed to allow every girl to recognize her inner strength and inspire her to define her life on her own terms. The 10 week program culminates in 5k event where all our girls come together and participate in a Girls on the Run 5k. This is an amazing event to be involved with. For more information on our program, volunteering, supporting or running please go to our website, or email Deidre Dodd at
