Running Club News

February 26, 2018

Welcome to Running Club!!

Thank you so much for joining! We cannot wait to get started on Monday, February 26th. Here are just a few bits of information...

  • Running Club News... this newsletter will be sent out regularly to keep you up to date on important information, and to share pictures of what the kids are doing at our club meetings each week!

  • Your child MUST have a note to stay!... if your child does not have a note to stay for Running Club on Mondays, they will be sent home their normal way at regular dismissal time. Be on the lookout for an email that will contain a sheet of easy print and cut notes so you don't have to hand write one each week.

  • Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes each week for Running Club. There won't be enough time to change clothes, so come to school dressed in what you plan to wear to Running Club. We recommend tech fabric shorts/pants/capris, a comfy shirt, and, of course, sneakers. Girls... don't forget something to put your hair up with!

  • We are so excited for the awesome Running Club shirts that were designed just for us! We should be getting them in soon!

  • Parents... Are you or other family members interested in signing up for the April 29th Fun Run or 5k that our club will be participating in? If so, visit this link. Early Bird pricing ends on April 1st. Hint... chose 'print and mail a check' to save a few extra dollars.

  • Want to train even more at home? Here is a great document from a very reputable program with several 5k training plans for all levels of walkers and runners. If your child is interested in doing extra running and walking at home, this could be a great plan for them to follow! Also, if you or another family member is wanting to train for a 5k, you can choose a plan that works for you!
