Running club invites all students from every grade to come out and run before school from August to late September. At the end of our weeks running, we will finish the season with the Annual Crosstown Classic race event that brings students from other elementary schools in the district to Mill Street for this fun and exciting race event!
The winning school wins the golden sneaker trophy!
WHAT IS RUN CLUB?
Our mission is to promote running in children of all ages and abilities. To organize activities that help children with developing better self-esteem, while building opportunities that encourage independent running. WE RUN BECAUSE WE CAN!
HOW ARE THE CHILDREN SUPERVISED?
I am the primary supervisor, however I would love parent volunteers to help be an extra set of eyes to help children should they fall or need extra assistance.
WHAT DOES A NORMAL RUN SESSION LOOK LIKE?
Most activities begin with dynamic stretches. These activities are led by upperclassmen (4th and 5th Graders). Run activities will follow and games will occur once a week. These activities allow children to interact and become more comfortable with school. I oversee most activities and most activities are from 7:30 a.m.-8:00 a.m...students enter school directly after run club.
WHAT IS THE CROSSTOWN CLASSIC?
Be part of the tradition as this will be our 10th annual event. Each year, students run for their schools. The top 3 schools can bring home a golden shoe. The event will be hosted at Mill Street Elementary. On Tuesday, October 1st beginning at 4:20 p.m. there will be a series of 16 races. The distances include the 400 (K-1 only), 800, and the mile.
DO WE SELL T-SHIRTS?
We proudly sell our t-shirts for 10 dollars. We schedule a tie-dye day (Sept 19th) and typically with the help of 20 parents we happily dye over 100 shirts. Look for information in August about purchasing t-shirts. Any extra money made is donated to a charity every year. Be part of the tradition as this will be our 10th annual event.
