Running Club


February 4th - April 5th

Cost: $10

Monday through Friday 8:25 am – 8:55 am

Running Club is open to students 1st through 5th grade. The goal of this running club is to motivate and inspire your children to enjoy physical fitness! Running is a lifelong sport that builds confidence and character!

It’s a productive way to take advantage of the late start schedule and get our students moving in the morning! Studies have shown that students who participate in a physical activity before school experience benefits ranging from improved health and mood to improvement with on-task behaviors, such as attentiveness and concentration.

Students participating can choose what days they would like to run. It is not mandatory that they run every day, but running club will be available every day if they so choose to participate. Meaning they can run every day or once or twice a week, etc. Also, they can run, walk, or both! The idea is to get them moving at their own pace and what feels comfortable to them. It’s meant to be fun and positive! Family members are totally welcome to stay and join their child as well if you’d like!

We will be tracking the students' laps and providing rewards at the end of each week for runners who have run at least 12 laps that week. Your child will be eligible to pick a prize out of the prize box every Friday! The top 10 performers over the 7 weeks will be rewarded with an additional prize and recognized at pride assembly as well! This running club will lead up to the 13th Annual O’side Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving, November 22nd! There is an option for each age group that is distance appropriate or you can run/ walk a family 5k. This is a fun way to “Move your Feet before you Eat”! You can register your child and/ or family at

If your child is interested, please feel out the attached registration form along with $10 and return with your child back to the school!

Download and print your registration form.

Once you have filled out your form, bring it to the office along with your $10 fee.

Looking for Volunteers

If you would like to help out with Running Club in the morning, please include your contact info and what day you would like to help on the volunteer page of the registration form.

Just once a week will do. Hours are between 8:25 am to 8:55 am for 8 weeks. We will need volunteers to help set up (8:25am -8:30am), track laps (8:30am -8:50am), and record laps/ cleanup (8:50am-8:55am). Depending on your time availability you can volunteer to do one, two, or all three of these jobs during your volunteer shift.

Whatever you have to give we will take!
