Fox Running Club

Tuesdays and Thursdays 8-8:25 by the swings! Everyone is encouraged to participate.

Here's how it works:

  • Every lap around the school perimeter is tallied and progress is recorded on a running card.
  • 4 laps around the school is equivalent to 1 mile AND for every 5 miles (20 laps) each student runs they will receive a foot charm.
  • Each student will receive a running card and volunteers will help record each lap.
  • The grass may be wet from the morning dew, you may want to bring a change of shoes and socks if your shoes get wet.
  • If your child runs in a race on a weekend, they are able to get credit towards running club. Please email fieldday@benfoxpta.org.
