The Miles Ahead Running Club kicked off to a wonderful start this Tuesday September 5 at 8:05am. Joggers, runners, and walkers came to the black top and had a good time, while jump-starting their day with physical activity (and helping avoid morning drop-off traffic)! If you cannot run, you can still participate by stamping cards and handing out running club stickers and charms at the table.
What: Running Club is a program funded by the TPES Foundation, which provides an opportunity for our students to run laps each morning.
When: 8:05 – 8:20am every morning, beginning Tuesday, Sept. 4th
Where: Out on the Blacktop
How it works: Each student has a running club card prepared for them at the start of each year. These cards are sorted by grade level/teacher, and can be found in the hallway next to the restrooms by the blacktop. For each lap that a student runs, they receive a stamp on their card. Once they run enough laps to total 5 miles, they receive a special sticker. After 10 miles, they receive a sticker and a charm. Special awards are given at the end of the year to students who reach a high number of miles, but running club is really for everyone to enjoy, no matter how many laps you run – you set your own pace! Parents/siblings are invited to run along with their students.
Rain Policy: If the blacktop is wet but no rain is falling, students may walk laps. If it is actively raining, Running Club will be cancelled
