We practice after school, from 4:10 until 5:00 pm, on Mondays and Wednesdays, beginning on September 4th. After our September 4th practice there will be a short parent informational meeting. There will be no practice on the Mondays that we have meets. Runners gather in the gym after school, and will need to bring a change of clothes (or proper running attire) and a water bottle with them on practice days. Runners are able to change clothes at the end of the school day and eat a quick snack before practice begins.  At practice, we will stretch, warm-up, run, play a lot of fun running games, and then cool down. Parents are always welcome to attend practices but are not required to be at practice. Runners need to be picked up when practice ends at 5:00 pm.


Race Nights

Races are held on Monday nights at the Shining Mountain Golf Course, in Woodland Park.  Runners will run one race each night:

• Kindergartners & 1st graders - .5 Mile

• 2nd thru 5th Graders – 1 Mile

• A 1.5 mile race is offered to advanced runners.

At each race, runners will receive a race tag with their number, a ribbon at the first two races, a series medal at the final race, along with a snack and some refreshments.
