Running Club


Are you a 4th-6th grader interested in running a 5k? Would you like to participate in a training program with your classmates?


Running Club will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays 3:50-4:50 p.m. beginning Tuesday Mar 14 through Thursday May 11 and train you to run the Forest Hills 5k on Saturday May 13 at 8:30 a.m.

Running Club will provide an opportunity for students to achieve their goal of running while building a sense of self. Members will participate in team building, goal setting, and building self esteem activities in combination with our training.
