 *Support all the Carroll County Road Runner Races!!

Road Runners is a club designed to encourage students to become "life-long" runners.  Each practice is set up to help develop good running habits as well as increase times for races.  Practices may consist of interval training, sprinting, long run days, hill training, and games.  I welcome any and all parents to participate in practices as well as just watch.  

Practices will be on Tuesday (1st-2nd grade) and Thursday (3rd-5th grade).  Practice will be over at 3:30 please pick up in the gym before 3:45.  Any students not picked up by 3:45 will be sent to the After School Program (ASP).

Races are scheduled throughout the year and will be placed on the calendar.  I will also post race forms on-line as well as have hard copies available.  All race forms need to be mailed to the hosting school.  Addresses are on the registration forms.
