Join Our 2017 Marine Corps Marathon® Team!


Are you looking for a fun, rewarding way to support Girls on the Run of Montgomery County? Join our team of 40 lucky marathoners and receive guaranteed entry into the 42nd Marine Corps Marathon.  

Funds raised through our SoleMates program increases coverage in more schools and ensures that our council is able to serve more girls in our community regardless of her ability to pay.   Every girl should know what it feels like to cross a finish line.

GOTR is a 10 week, activity based program that inspires and motivates girls, encourages lifelong health and fitness, and builds confidence through accomplishment. At the conclusion of each season, girls and their running buddies participate in a celebratory 5k- making the seemingly impossible, possible and teaching girls that they can.  GOTR MoCo is the largest council in Maryland, with over 5000 runners at each 5K.

The Marine Corps Marathon® is ranked as one of the world’s largest marathons, drawing 30,000 runners annually from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and more than 50 countries. The race winds its way through the nation’s capital, passing by many of the city’s historic sights and memorials. Known as “The People’s Marathon”, MCM is open to all runners aged 14 and older and is the largest marathon that does not offer prize money.

Interested in crossing the MCM finish line while supporting a young girl to do the same?

Whether you are a seasoned marathoner or a newbie looking to finish your first race, running on behalf of Girls on the Run is a unique way to support girls in the community by giving them the opportunity for free or reduced access into this transformational program.

Join our team today!
