This year for our Annual Road Race we are continuing with the expansion of last year's successful races! We will once again include a 1 mile, a 2 mile, and a 5K that will utilize our nature trail as part of the course.  Students will run each race according to their ability, with the majority of the oldest students participating in the 5K. We will continue to have our Family Fun run (1 lap around the school building) for siblings and parents. We encourage you to invite all of your family and friends to join us. We will have a great time, come rain or shine!
