Student Running Clubs
Boys Run Belvedere
The boy's running group will be meeting for practices on Thursdays from 4:00-5:00. At the end of the season, they will participate in the Jingle Bell 5K.
Sole Sisters is a running club with a focus on having fun while exercising. The girls are provided a healthy snack, tips on ways to stay healthy, as well as being exposed to “fun” way of exercising. In the fall, we’ve played kickball, Frisbee games, participated in relay races and took classes in Zumba. In addition, we also trained for a 5K. Our goal for Sole Sisters is to have fun while exercising and what better way to do that than with 60 of your friends!
