How to Register

Online registration is preferred. If you need computer access, talk to your school or stop by the GOTR office at 907 Clocktower in Springfield. To register by phone, call the office at 217-726-9808. Enrollment in GOTR is limited to 15 girls per team! Most of our teams chose to conduct first come, first serve enrollment therefore it is important to register your girl early.

STEP 1: Complete Scholarship Application
(only if applicable, if not skip to STEP 2)

Scholarship Application

Financial assistance is available for registrants who can demonstrate eligibility based on financial need. You must complete the Scholarship Application BEFORE completing the Registration Form and we will get back to you via email within 24 hours on the status of your application. You must wait until you receive an email stating your scholarship status/code before completing the Registration Form.

Please note: Submitting a scholarship application DOES NOT ensure a spot on the team and it does not affect your chances in a lottery-based registration process.

STEP 2: Complete Registration Application 

Registration Form 

A parent or guardian must complete the Registration Form to register their girl at her school or community site. We accept debit card, credit card, or e-check for the registration fee. We also offer payment plans for your convenience.

Girls on the Run of Central Illinois will refund the registration fee (minus $5 online service charge) if requested prior to the 4th lesson of a Girls on the Run program. No refunds will be issued for any terminations after the 4th lesson. In the event that an unforeseen illness or health issue arises after the 4th lesson, such instances will be handled on a case by case basis.

Attendance Policy

Due to the importance of group dynamics and the experiential learning process of the curriculum, guardians should be informed prior to registration that girls attending only one session a week are in violation of the Girls on the Run attendance policy.


Lottery-Based Registration

Starting Spring 2017, several of our sites who have had high-demand for Girls on the Run in the past will be changing to a lottery-based registration process (instead of first come, first serve). All girls who register between February 8th at 8am and February 13th at 11:59pm will be entered into a lottery system for the 15 available team spots. Once you have completed the online registration, you will receive a confirmation email stating your girl has been placed in the lottery. This email does not guarantee a spot on the team.

Placement day will occur on Wednesday, February 15th at which time you will be notified via email if your girl has been placed on the team. Your credit/debit card will only be charged if your girl is placed on the team.

Farmingdale Elementary parents/guardians – At this site, girls who have never participated in the program will have first preference in the lottery. This is to ensure all girls are able to participate in the program if they choose. We will open any remaining team spots (on a lottery basis) to girls who have participated in the past once the first lottery round has closed.
