Running Club is an informal club that meets once a week for a fall and spring season during the school year.
Parent volunteers coach and run with the kids, giving them experience participating in an activity as a team member, learning respect and discipline, and learning about the sport of running through organized races.
Running club meets every Wednesday after school from 3 - 4:15pm, beginning September 21st and ending November 16th if weather permits.
We will have voluntary participation in 3 races during the fall season.
