Running Club

Hiawatha Running Club 2016


All students, staff and family members are encouraged to join the Hiawatha Elementary Running

Club. You don't need to be an experienced runner to join the club. As long as you have a good

attitude and want to work hard, we would love to have you! In 2014, 208 of the school's 409

student tried running club at least once. That's over half of the school! In 2015 a record number

of kindergartners attended running club! In 2016 our running club placed second for the participation award at the Lace Up for Learning Race.


Starting April 4, we will meet every Monday and Friday at 7:50AM. Supervision for students will

be available starting at 7:35. At 8:45 students will be dismissed to their classroom. If a student

eats breakfast at school, they may go to the cafeteria around 8:30. We will finish the running

club season on May 13, 2017 at the Lace Up for Learning race.


Meet in the gym for attendance and announcements. We will start at 7:50 sharp and head outside

to the fitness trail. Please dress appropriately to run outside. Many students will wear gloves and

a hat. If it is raining, we will cancel Running Club for that day. If it starts to rain while the

student are running, we will exercise in the gym the remainder of the time.

Shirts                  Running_club_tshirt

Students, staff and families will have the opportunity to purchase a running club shirt for

approximately $5. In the past, many parents have purchased a running club shirt for themselves

to wear as they join their student at the Lace Up for Learning race. If you are able, please

consider donating a little extra money so a student that cannot afford a shirt will receive one.
