Ever wondered if you could run around the world (or just to New York)?  Well, instead of standing around the yard waiting for the morning bell, kids (and parents) can walk, run, jog, skip, and hop around the world!


Carthay's Morning Running Club is a daily running club for grades K through 5th that provides a positive and healthy opportunity for our children to develop a daily routine of physical exercise. Regular before school exercise also helps increase attentiveness and behavior in the classroom.


Running Club starts on Monday at 7:55am, and runs daily from 7:55am - 8:10am.  All kids and parents are invited to walk, jog or run around the track. See you there!


Each lap around the track is 1/10th of a mile.  With each lap, kids collect a popsicle stick.  We'll count all of the sticks and track progress by placing footprints on the map!  


There are prizes, too!  


For more details, and/or if you'd like to help for a few minutes on one or more mornings, check out the attached info-sheet or contact the Running Club Chair Deborah Henderson.
