Running Club


GRE Running Club marches in the Homecoming Parade
 Wednesday, September 6th 

All 4th and 5th graders in running club can represent Gold Rush Elementary by walking in the Legend High School homecoming parade.  Anyone wishing to participate should meet Ms. Warner, Mrs. Holtzer, and Ms. Lautenbach at the flag pole on the south side of Legend High School at 4:45. Be sure to wear your Gold Rush colors (red, gold, and black).  At 4:55 we will move to the parking lot on the north side of the building to begin the parade.  The parade route goes up the hill and finishes at Cimarron Middle school around 5:30.  Parents should pick their child up at the front door of Cimarron Middle School.  

Running club is back for our 6th year.  Student check-in and stretching will begin at 7:45 on the Gold Rush field.  Running club is open to 2nd - 5th grade students only.  Participants are encouraged to move at their own speed (walk, jog, run) and must be willing to engage in a variety of running activities such as lap counts, timed runs, and team running.  Students will be dismissed at 8:20 to enter the building.  Select the session that works best for your family. Registration and payment will be open on line so be sure to check out the Principal's Message email for the link on Thursday, August 17th.

Participants should wear tennis shoes and bring a full water bottle. Classes will be held in the gym during rainy weather.  

The popular "reward tokens" will be used again to keep our runners motivated and consistent with their work-outs.  The tokens are tiny achievement symbols (see below) and will be given out at the end of each class.  Students who miss a class can make up 20-30 minutes of exercise on their own time, turn in a parent confirmation note, and receive the missed token.     

Color everywhere!  Collect them all!
