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!
