We’re using the lottery system as part of our efforts to allow all girls an equal opportunity to participate in Girls on the Run. In recent years, teams have been filling up quickly, and the lottery system gives every girl an equal chance to participate. For Fall 2022, there will be 2 registration tracks:
Early Registration - Lottery registration will open May 18 - 24 and the lottery will “run” on May 25. At that time, if more girls are registered than the number of available spots on the team, the registration system will randomly select girls for that team. All additional girls will remain in “lottery status” and be placed on the waitlist. Teams that are not at capacity at the time of lottery closing will include all girls registered at that time. Registration will then re-open and additional girls will be added on a first-come, first-serve basis until team capacity is reached, and a waiting list will begin.
Standard Registration - Lottery registration will open August 1 - August 8 and the lottery will "run" on August 9.
If your girl is awarded a spot on the team, you will be notified by email, and any payment on file will be processed at that time. If your girl is waitlisted, you will be notified by email and your card will NOT be charged. Waitlisted participants will have the opportunity to move to a nearby site, or remain on the waitlist in the chance a spot becomes available.
