Please fill out one entry form (see below) for EACH runner and include the fee of $15 for students and $20 for adults running with the school’s 5K team. Forms and money are DUE by September 19, 2018 to Coach Bastian. Adults MUST register and pay the fee for this race in order to run with their children. Please make checks payable to Cowtown Marathon.

In order to walk/run a distance of 3.1 miles, students will need some preparation for the race which is six weeks away. Participation in Runners’ Club afterschool is optional and will meet on Tuesday and Thursday from 3:45-4:45 p.m., starting August 28, 2018.

Runners’ Club will meet in the gym after school, travel to the B Mod building as a group to change, then go out to the church canopy to stretch and place belongings before going to run our laps around the field. Students will need a water bottle and a change of clothes. Students need to be picked up at 4:45 p.m. from the practice field. After school students will be walked back to the A building.

Students in Kindergarten and 1st will need a parent to stay to walk/run with them. Everyone is welcome to join!! Upon completion, all runners will be provided a medal, a special race shirt, post-race refreshments. All runners who cross the finish line on race day will be winners, having accomplished for themselves improved physical fitness, self-esteem, and pride in achievement of this goal. The smiles crossing the finish line are AMAZING!! If you have any questions about this event, please contact Coach Bastian at janet.bastian@hpafortworth.com.
