Extra Information

Redstone Elementary Run Club

Practices:  We meet Tuesdays and Thursdays after school at 3:30 pm until 4:15 pm.   No Tuesday practice on race nights.

Runners will assemble at the basketball courts behind the school.  At practice we will warm-up, run with our ability groups, play a game, cool down, and be released to the same assembly area.  Please pick-up your runner at 4:15 pm.  All runners must have  a water bottle, labeled with his/her name on it to every practice!

Practices are cancelled if the wind chill is under 30 degrees, and/or if it is physically snowing or raining.  Coach Keri will email you no later than 2:30 if practice is cancelled.  *You will need to contact the school to make other arrangements for your runner.*

Dress for Success:  Runners need to dress according to the weather.  We encourage them to change out of their school attire into running clothes before practice begins. 

Clothing guidelines:

55 degrees and warmer - Running shoes, t-shirt, shorts, and optional running hat.

45-54 degrees - Running shoes, t-shirt, sweatshirt/windbreaker, shorts or sweat pants.

44 degrees and cooler - Running shoes, t-shirt, sweatshirt/windbreaker, sweat pants, running hat/head band and gloves.  If it is windy, dress one cooler level down.

Running shoes:  We will train on the areas around the school. We encourage you to purchase running shoes for your runner(s).  Please check your child’s current running shoes for wear.  Expect to pay at least $50 for a good shoe that will last for the fall and spring series if worn just for running.  Buy them a little large, not tight.  We have two running stores sponsoring our program and providing a discount for Landshark runners:  Colorado Running Company  in Colorado Springs and the Runner’s Roost in Lone Tree.
