WARRIORS ON THE RUN
“Warriors on the Run” was established in March of 2012. The club is open to all students Kindergarten thru 12th Grade and their parents/guardians. Practices are held every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 2:45 P.M. – 4:00 P.M. The club participates in 5K events that are held in Putnam and surrounding counties. We had a desire to provide our elementary students with the opportunity to participate in an extracurricular running activity on a weekly basis. It is truly a blessing to have the opportunity to share God’s plan for our bodies with the runners in our club each week. We work hard to insure each runner has a good understanding of how to fuel their body, care for their body and train their body for each race.
For more information contact Mrs. Fletcher.
