Begins November 16, 2020
Thank you so much for encouraging your kids to join Running Club! I know that this year is much different than previous years, but I’m still so excited that we are able to run this program.
During second quarter, Running Club will be virtual. Students will participate at home and track their miles in a Running Club Log.
Plans for third quarter Running Club practices and potential competitions will be communicated to families prior to the end of second quarter. No fee will be charged while Running Club is virtual.
Expectations for Running Club:
We typically have Running Club two days a week when it’s at school, so we can make that our goal for home as well. If you are able to do more than that, then that’s great too! There is no expectation for how far you decide to run each day, but we do want the students to be honest about the distance that they log. StrideTrack is not a program that calculates the miles as you run, but just a program that keeps track of what you log, so make sure after you finish your run to go log the distance on the website. I will be able to see the miles that the students log and give them quick, helpful suggestions in the “Challenge” area of their home screen each week. We still do not have any set plans to run meets at this time, but if things change I will be sure to let you all know. Either way, at the end of the program I will print out Awards/Certificates for each member who participated and their total miles ran. Let me know if you have any other questions.
