Wildcats Running Club

Mr. Wright with Running Club at first meet

Wildcats Running Club began in 2016 to give 3rd - 5th grade students (boys and girls) an opportunity to develop running skills and to compete with regional runners. The club meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school on the West Side Track from Aug. 16 - Oct. 11. In the first season, the club attended six meets. Those interested should show up for practice and wear running shoes, shorts and a T-shirt. No experience is necessary. This is a low-key introduction to the sport of cross country, and most runs are about a mile long. The cost to participate is the cost of a West Side Running shirt and the costs of race registration. Faculty sponsor are John Wright and Shelley Smithdeal.
