Crestmont Cruisers Running Club


This is a free, year-long program for 1st – 5th graders that encourage students to develop healthy fitness habits. The students will run or walk at their own pace around a course on the playground Tuesday and Thursday at 7:45 am – 8:15 am (weather permitting). Parent volunteers will track mileage. There is a built-in award schedule in which the cruisers can earn toe tokens and other awards.

Benefits of participation in a regular exercise program include the following:

  • Improves academic performance
  • Reduces excess energy and stress
  • Helps students meet new friends
  • Exercises perseverance
  • Improves sleep and mood
  • Teaches students long-term goal setting
  • Improves health
  • Improves self-esteem and body image
  • Promotes fun

If you can complete marathon distance (26.2 miles) by May, you will earn a Crestmont Cruisers Marathon T-shirt at the end of the year and an invitation to the Marathoners Breakfast!

Crestmont Cruisers Running Club is every Tuesday & Thursday at 7:45 a.m. Weather permitting.
