100 Mile Running Club

SIERRA’S 100 MILE CLUB

Starts Wednesday, September 4th

Everyone can join - students, staff, and parents!  Please join us!


STUDENT INFO:

We are excited to offer a walking / jogging / running club ALL YEAR LONG! The goal is for you to complete as many laps as you can before the school year is over! If you accomplish the 100 miles, you 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).

  • Recess on Friday IF we get parent volunteers.

  • Community races - simply return your race bib to Mrs. Peters with your name and the distance written on it, and I will punch your 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?

  • On our new SIERRA TRACK!!! Five laps = 1 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

  • I  will deliver your rewards to your classroom on Fridays and you will get your name announced over the intercom when you  reach 100 miles.

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

  • You will also receive a necklace for joining and then charms for every 4 miles you run.

  • Every participant who ran at least 5 miles will receive a certificate at the end of the year! The certificates and medals will be rewarded at the awards assembly!


INCLEMENT WEATHER:

Although this club is EVERY Monday and Wednesday throughout the whole year, I will cancel if there is snow and/or ice on the ground, raining, or below freezing. I watch the forecast the night before and you will receive a messenger by 6:00 p.m. notifying you of the cancellation.

 

Please make checks payable to Sierra Elementary and turn in the enrollment form and payment by FRIDAY 8/30 in order to be ready for the 1st day - Wednesday 9/4. If you choose not to join the club right now, you can always sign-up any time throughout the year if you change your mind!

Info for other family members: 

  • We would love to have parents, grandparents, and younger siblings here participating with your child/student - you’d be setting 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 me, Maria.Peters@jeffco.K12.co.us and I will send your 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. 


You may simply add your name to the back of your child’s enrollment form and include the additional $10 per member in one check.


NEW THIS YEAR!

  • Our track is ready to go!  They fixed the flooding problems over the summer, so we will meet at our own fields.

  • Students will get to earn mileage on Fridays at recess (if they choose to), if we get parent volunteers.

  • 5k and 10k charms for any students who participate in community 5k and 10k races.

  • A special Mustang charm for the students who participate in the special Lisa Nelson Mustang Stampede on 9/14/19.  Registration form is attached and you can turn form and fees to me and I will deliver to Ralston Valley.

  • 100 Mile Club sticker and Challenge Accepted card for all members.
