Girls on the Run of Austin invites you to attend one or all of our special events. Please join us in supporting this life-changing program and make a difference in the life of a young girl.







Volunteer with us at the Texas Zooma Run on Saturday, March 10th! Imagine a powerful sea of women on the move – encouraging fellow runners, creating unforgettable moments, getting strong, and celebrating personal running triumphs.  Picture an inspiring weekend filled with strong women, yoga sessions, intelligent speakers, an exciting expo, and celebrations in an unforgettable resort location.  This is Zooma.

Groups of 10 will receive $200, and every volunteer gets a free tech shirt to wear on race day. Opportunities include packet pick-up in Austin, or race day duties at the Hyatt Lost Pines. Please email Alicia Henderson for more information!

GOTR 5k Color

The Girls on the Run Austin Fall 2017 5k took place on Saturday, December 9th at the Dell Diamond in Round Rock. Please join us next year for this one-of-a-kind event!


The 2017 LUNAFEST event raised over $2,000 for Girls on the Run Austin and the Breast Cancer Fund, and we look forward to an even more successful event in 2018. Please check back in Spring 2018 for additional information on this one-of-a-kind event!

LUNAFEST is a traveling film festival of award-winning short films by, for and about women with stories of reflection, hope and humor. Each year, various organizations bring LUNAFESTs to their communities and raise funds for their local non-profits as well as the main beneficiary, Breast Cancer Fund to over 150 cities and screen in front of 25,000 people.

Girls on the Run of Austin brings LUNAFEST to Austin, Texas in partnership with Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, with 100% of the ticket proceeds benefitting GOTR and the Breast Cancer Research Fund.


These mini, pop-up events offer us an opportunity to go to local businesses and spread the word about this amazing program. We typically set up a table with materials and grow awareness, recruit volunteers and accept donations to sponsor girls’ participation in one of our after-school programs. If you are interested in hosting a Sponsor-a-Girl event at your location, please email
