Fall Running Club -- Fit Kids in School

In conjunction with the Hartford Marathon Foundation, students in grades 4-8 may sign up and train one afternoon each week at SBS with Mrs. Frost. The goal of the Fit Kids in School club is to have fun while getting in some fitness. Each week for six weeks, we will run together on school property and log our miles. Each student can log up to 12.1 or 25.2 miles and then complete their “final mile” with a field trip to the final mile race at Rentschler Field in East Hartford where students from schools all over Connecticut will finish their long distance goals of either a half or full marathon distance. This popular club encourages fitness, healthy exercise, eating habits and fun.

Spring Running Club

Our spring running club is an extension of our fall running club, but it is less focused on a set distance goal. Students in grades 4-8 again may sign up to train one afternoon each week at SBS with Mrs. Frost. Our main goals in the spring are to jump start our fitness for spring sports and enjoy exercise in the outdoors. The program runs for 5 or 6 weeks, and our group seeks participation in local 5K at the end of our training as our final group event. (The 5K is voluntary and is done outside of the regular school day.)
