Youth Activities in Junction City, KS

Heart & Sole is Girls on the Run’s middle school program that meets the unique needs of girls in 6th through 8th grade.

Program Components

Heart & Sole considers the whole girl – body, brain, heart, spirit and social connection – in a positive, structured space where girls can:

  • Learn about themselves
  • Explore new ideas
  • Cultivate empathy
  • Strengthen connections

Running is incorporated into each lesson to encourage physical wellness and teach life skills such as:

  • Team building
  • Creating a support system
  • Standing up for themselves and others
  • Decision making

The girls prepare for a celebratory Girls on the Run 5K event at the end of the program. This non-competitive event fosters goal setting and a sense of confidence through accomplishment to last a lifetime.


Girls on the Run offers programs at a selection of schools in the Junction City and Fort Riley area. Find sites offering the GOTR program.


Registration is done by season. Visit Girls on the Run for registration details.
