It is time for Woodward Elementary School?s Sixth Annual Running Club! Running Club members are challenged to walk, jog, or run a Progressive Marathon (26.2 miles) during the 2017 - 2018 school year! Every Monday and Thursday afternoon, Running Club Members are invited to run/walk a mile. The Running Club Coordinators will supervise scheduled Run Days. Marathoners are able to run miles independently as well. Members will be responsible for keeping track of the number of miles they complete. Club members will be given a toe token for each mile completed. Toe tokens may be worn as a bracelet or hung on a backpack. The last mile of the Progressive Marathon may be run at a local running event (more info to come) where students will be awarded a Finisher?s Medal.
