A Running Buddy is 16+ years of age and can be a parent/guardian, family member, neighbor, teacher, GOTR coach, or anyone else your participant would like to run with. Running buddies support their Girls on the Run participant by encouraging them to complete the 5K at their "happy pace."
If you’re having difficulty finding a Running Buddy, please let your coaches know. Your child can be paired with a volunteer Running Buddy. All volunteer Running Buddies are vetted and background checked by GOTR Greater Boston.
