Bobcat Trail Club Kicks Off Sep 11th

The Bobcat Trail Club is a running/walking program for Bonny Slope Elementary students and staff.  The goal of the Bobcat Trail Club is to encourage fitness in a fun way!  Kids will run/walk laps on the track and accumulate the laps completed.  Rewards will be given after designated milestones are reached.


When Do I Run/Walk?

Kids can run/walk during their lunch recess on Tuesdays and before school on Thursdays.  We’ll kick off on Thursday, September 11th at 8:00 am and Tuesday, September 16th  during recess.  Teachers and family members are welcome and encouraged to run with the kids.  The program will run through May 2015.


How Do I Sign Up?

All kids are automatically signed up and can participate as they wish.  Once you start running on Tuesday or Thursday, you have started the journey to the marathon distance.


How Do I Track My Laps Ran/Walked?

Each child will be given a card with 40 numbers on it.  As laps are completed, volunteers will punch one number for each lap ran.

Milestones (40 laps = ¼ marathon)
•    ¼ marathon
•    ½ marathon
•    marathon
•    ultra marathon



Awards for participating and running specific distances include: wristband,  backpack charms, medal and lots of recognition! Kids will be recognized as a group at Friday Assembly’s throughout the year.


What if there is Bad Weather?
The Bobcat Trail Club will follow the school’s decision on weather.  On Tuesdays if the children are required to play undercover or are not allowed on the track for some reason, Bobcat Trail Club will not take place that day.  Bobcat Trail Club runs every Thursday – either on the track or undercover.
