Breckenridge Elementary Run Club

The Elementary Run Club had a great season. This club is for 3rd through 5th grade students. We had 53 boys and girls participate this year. During the four week season we had a lot of fun playing many different running games to keep us active. It was a different year than normal, but we still enjoyed the time together and the friendships made.


We want to thank our volunteers for their time investing in our students after school. We also want to thank our school community for continuing to support our club. We are looking forward to another season this FALL. Good luck to our 5th graders who will be moving up to the middle school next year. You will be missed!


** 5th graders, if you are interested in running Cross Country this fall they start running as a team through the summer. This is a great opportunity to continue your love for running.

**2nd-4th graders be on the look out early Fall for information. We are going to try and do club earlier in the year, hoping for warmer weather and less conflicts.
