100 Mile Running Club

SIERRA’S 100 MILE CLUB

Everyone can join - students, staff, and parents!

Please join us in this amazing challenge!


STUDENT INFO:

We are excited to offer a walking/jogging/running club ALL YEAR LONG! The goal is for students to complete as many laps as they can before the school year is over!  If they accomplish the 100 miles, they will receive a gold medal at the end of the year!


When can you participate to accumulate laps?

  • Every Monday and Wednesday from 8:00-8:45 am (weather permitting).

  • Community races - simply return race bib to Mrs. Peters with name and the distance written on it, and she will punch cards for the appropriate # of laps.

  • We can not accept laps that students do around their neighborhood or at sports practices - sorry no exceptions!


Where do we participate?

  • The park on the north side of the school, the loop equals ¼ of a mile.


The fee is $10 and students will receive the following:

  • 25 miles – T-shirt

  • 50 miles – pencil

  • 75 miles – wristband

  • 100 miles – gold medal

  • Mrs. Peters will deliver rewards to classrooms on Fridays and students will get their names announced over the intercom when they reach 100 miles.

  • There will also be a chart hanging in the cafeteria where students' names will be recorded for each milestone (25, 50, 75, and 100).

  • Students will also receive a necklace for joining and then charms for every 5 miles you run.

  • Every participant will receive a certificate at the end of the year!  The certificates and medals will be rewarded at a celebration assembly!


INCLEMENT WEATHER:

Although this club is EVERY Monday and  Wednesday throughout the whole year, it will be canceled if there is snow and/or ice on the ground, raining, or below freezing. Mrs. Peters watches the forecast the night before and she will send out a messenger by 6:00 p.m. notifying of the cancellation.

Please make checks payable to Sierra Elementary and turn in the enrollment form and payment by Friday, 9/1 in order to be ready for the 1st day - Wednesday, 9/6.  Students can always sign-up any time throughout the year!


PARENTS CAN JOIN TOO!  


Info for adults members:

  • We would love to have parents here participating with their child/student - a great way to set a positive and healthy example for all of the students. However, we know this may not work with your schedule. Therefore, you may participate in this club at home and on your own time.

  • You keep track of your own mileage.

  • When you reach 25, 50, 75, and 100 miles, email Mrs. Peters: malpeter@jeffco.k12.co.us and she will send rewards home with your child!

  • You are NOT allowed to count mileage that you accumulate throughout the day. It must be mileage that you accumulate by purposefully doing it for exercise above and beyond your daily activities and must be a walk/jog/run.

  • If you do reach 100 miles, than you too will be invited to the awards assembly where you will receive your gold medal - the kids love it!


You may simply add your name and payment to your child’s enrollment form.
