Off and Running!!


  • We had a great time yesterday with the kids! We started out with stretching and warm-ups. We then talked to them about pacing themselves versus sprinting and gave them a chance to pace with us around the bus lane. Three times around the bus lane is the fun run distance (1 mile) so we are having them work up to that. At the end we played freeze tag! See below for photos and videos!

  • Bring water!! It still feels like summer!

  • Have you signed up your child for the November Fun Run? Please follow the directions below to do so. If you know you will be out of town for Thanksgiving and CANNOT make the Fun Run, please just e-mail Lauren Williams to let us know (lauren_c_williams@gwinnett.k12.ga.us).

How to Register Your Child for the November 23 Fun Run!

For waiver/legality reasons, you must register your own child for our November 23rd Fun Run at Little Mulberry Park. See below for the steps...

  2. Look on the right side of the screen, choose Register: Online & Print & Mail a Check
  3. Enter YOUR information
  4. Choose Register Someone Under the Age of 18
  5. Follow the steps to register your child, choose their shirt size and choose Fun Run
  6. Save & Continue
  7. Choose "I'm Done" (please register just your FMES club member right now)
  8. You will get to the payment screen, enter coupon code FMES, click 'apply coupon', the price should drop to $12.00
  9. Click Save & Continue
  10. Click Print Registration
  11. IGNORE the $12 fee! You do not have to pay it by check, the Running Club will cover the cost for all of the runners!

If you or other family members want to register for the 5k or Fun Run...


  1. Follow the exact same steps, but you WILL have to mail the check for yourself/additional family members. You can also choose Pay Online, but there is a fee.
  2. You may use the FMES coupon code, but it only works for one person each time. You can go in and register everyone separately to get the savings or just let it work for one person, your choice. If you have many extra runners, you may want to look into the Family discount rate option for savings.
  3. The early bird pricing ends on OCTOBER 1st, so register this week!!
