Grizzly Running Club

lces running club

LCES Grizzly Running Club's goal is to introduce students to running and goal setting, improve their physical fitness, and build friendships with their teammates.

 

 

REQUIRED RACE ENTRY

All participants must register for and run at least on race per season (fall & spring).  If your child only runs in the fall season, they do not need to run a spring race and vice versa.

Practice Times

Practices will be held on Mondays and Fridays after school until 4:45pm. After two late pick-ups, your child will be dismissed from the program. One pick-up after 5:00pm will result in an immediate dismissal.
