The RHE Run Club is open to all RHE students. We will meet Mondays and Thursdays from 3:15-3:45 p.m. on the RHE track starting Sept. 8. Please plan to have your child attend at least one practice per week. At least one parent must attend first practice so you can sign a permission slip and get more information.
For practices after Sept. 8, third through fifth grade students can attend practices and races without parent. However, K-2nd must have an adult present at ALL practices and races. K-indergarten through second gradeparents are responsible for bringing their child down to the track for each practice. Please make sure your child has a small snack BEFORE practice, comfortable running shoes and a water bottle for each practice.
Your third through fifth grader will need to meet us on the track and you may pick up your third through fifth grader on the track at 3:45 p.m. If your child is late more than two times, your child will not be able to practice with us or register with the RHE Run Club team on race day.
