We are gearing up for another fun year of Sprinting Stars. In 2017/2018 our runners logged over 600 miles even with several run days cancelled due to inclement weather. Let’s see if we can top that this year!

 

WHAT IS SPRINTING STARS? 

Sprinting Stars is the LWBE PTA after school running program. There is no fee to enroll, as the program is 100% volunteer managed and operated. Parents are required to volunteer 1-2 times per season, to ensure the running program is safe, fun, and successful for the runners. Volunteers must be an LISD approved volunteer. 

 

HOW DOES IT WORK? 

Runners run/walk as many laps on the course as time allows, approximately 25 minutes. Volunteers track and log the distance for each runner. Runners receive awards for achieving distance milestones. Running distances accumulate season after season. Several runners reached their 100th mile last year! 

 

WHY PARTICIPATE? 

Running/walking is great exercise, builds confidence by setting/achieving goals, and is fun with friends!  

 

WHO CAN JOIN? 

Sprinting Stars is open to all LWBE students grades K-5. All ability levels are welcome. Students may run or walk, based on their own individual fitness goals. 

 

WHERE DO THE RUNS TAKE PLACE? 

The ¼ mile track is setup on the LWBE playground, behind the school.  

 

WHEN ARE THE RUNS? 

There is a Fall and Spring Season. The runs take place immediately after school on designated Wednesday afternoons. Parent pick up is at 3:20pm on the playground.
