Register

When you register your daughter for the program, you are also registering her for the 5k event as part of the program fee. You do not need to register her separately for the 5k. However, all other runners--including running buddies--must register separately for the 5k. Race registration information will be sent home throughout the season.

How does the lottery work?

In an effort to give all girls the chance to sign up for this life changing program, Girls on the Run of Bexar County implements a lottery system for registration at Cambridge and Woodridge Elementary.

Girls using our online lottery system can register between January 23 at 7:00 pm and February 6 at noon, when the lottery will be drawn. Families will be notified whether or not they are selected by February 7. 

Participation fees will be charged upon acceptance in the lottery. Once you have been accepted, your participation fees are nontransferable under any and all circumstances. Registration fees are refundable (minus a $15 processing fee) up until February 17 only if notification has been made to Girls on the Run in writing via email to minka.misangyi@girlsontherun.org.

If the team does not fill at 15 girls before the lottery is drawn, all girls registered to that point will be accepted onto the team, and registration will remain open on a first come, first served basis until the team fells. 

  • If your daughter is selected in the lottery: You will receive an email that your daughter has been selected, and your credit card will be charged.
  • If your daughter is NOT selected in the lottery: You will receive an email that your daughter has been placed on the waiting list, and your credit card will NOT be charged at this time.
  • If you are registering siblings during the lottery registration period: When the computer-generated lottery is run, either both siblings will be randomly selected or neither sibling will be selected AS LONG AS you register BOTH siblings in the same form using the "Add Another Participant?" button on the bottom of the health and insurance information page.

The financial sustainability of our program depends on the honesty and integrity of parents who choose their appropriate registration amount.  It is essential that each family contribute as much toward the full cost of the registration fee as it can afford. Local fundraising efforts and donations help to bridge the gap between program fees paid and necessary sponsorship. The actual program cost per girl is $300.

If additional assistance is needed outside of our registration rates, please call (210-901-0167) or email Minka Misangyi. We never want money to be a reason not to join GOTR.

Families that have the ability to and are interested in supporting the program beyond the $150 registration fee may choose to sponsor additional girls as well.
