On Your Mark Runners! Cross Country Running For Grades 1-6th

Our Cross Country Running program is a fitness program for our local kids to explore routes and trails around the Girdwood School, and enjoy the last weeks of warmer weather. Kids will experience running varying distances and challenges, and we invite everyone of 1st to 6th grade ages to participate. We believe strongly in providing a safe, yet exciting, venue for runners to enjoy nature, while also having the opportunity to reflect and challenge themselves. Hour long sessions will be held twice a week after school. Runners will be split up according to their speed. Runners are expected to attend all practices, wear proper running shoes plus hat and gloves if needed, and be prepared to run in the rain. Bring a change of clothes to change into afterwards, plus a water-bottle and snack to eat right after school.

An optional Jamboree is held Saturday September 22nd at Service High School from 9am-Noon.

We need parent volunteers to run with the kids each week. Please let us know your availability! Call Melanee Stiassny at 907-231-4913.
