Multiple studies have shown that cardio exercise in the morning promotes better mood, concentration and academic performance. Additionally, social running is fun!
Running Club is for ALL Meadows students. No running experience needed. No permission slips required. Just show up on the lower playground at 7:40 a.m., Tuesday-Friday. You can run, walk, or skip until 8 a.m. Every lap is tracked and runners are rewarded when they reach marathon milestones. Parents are welcome to run, too!
Join Remind Group Text to get automatic Run Club notifications. Text @3a3ehe to the number 81010 to join.
If it rains after 6 p.m. the prior evening, Running Club is cancelled.
Consistent with prior years, MB elementary school Run Clubs will support a sister city school in Lawndale, less than 10 minutes down the road. As our Meadows students complete their first marathon, a pair of athletic shoes in their name will be donated to a Lawndale child.
If your child runs an official race outside of school (i.e. local 5K, 10K, etc.), please bring proof of such race (i.e. bib from the race, copy of registration) to one of our run club volunteers and we will credit your child with the distance run in Stride Track tool.
To be eligible to attend the Run Club Year-End Party in June 2020, runners must run a minimum of two marathons (cumulative total for entire school year).
Running Club was founded by and is entirely operated by parent volunteers. If you'd like to help, please contact Co-Chairs Verena or Jessica.
