Running Club

    The Fireside Running Club is a group that will meet to run and promote cardiovascular fitness throughout the school year. Physical activity is very important for youth and adults. We hope many students will join as well as adults from the community.  It has been proven that exercise before school benefits students throughout the day.  

    Who can join? Students K-5 are welcome to join.  Depending on your child's needs, you may need to join him/her for the first few sessions,  We would love adults in the community to join us as well!

    When and where will we run? We will meet before school at 7:30 in the gym and we will be running around the perimeter of Fireside Elementary.  Parents will need to check their email on inclement weather days to find out if Running Club has been canceled.

    Free Program!! There is no cost involved but students are encouraged to wear weather appropriate attire and tennis shoes. Students will earn one toe token every time they participate in Running Club.  

    What day does the program start? Running Club will start on Sept. 8th and meets on Monday and Friday mornings this year. Your child can come on any day as long as they have signed up online. There is no need to tell us if your child is going to be absent. *Please do not drop your child off any earlier than 7:25 (there will be no adult supervision).

    Volunteers Needed!  The more the merrier! Just show up with your child on the first day.   See the Sign Up Genius for more information.

    We can't wait to share our love for running with our community and to stay healthy all year long!
