Arroyo Seco Elementary School

Cruisin' Colts Running Club


Arroyo Seco Cruisin’ Colts Running Club

Students from all grade levels are invited to participate in this awesome fitness program!  This year we have over 300 Cruisin’ Colts!  Running Club takes place most Wednesdays from 1:30pm-2:15pm. Members run (or walk) as many laps as they wish around the Arroyo Seco grass fields.  Students are instructed to run around the designated loop and will collect a tally stick for each lap.  Tally sticks are turned in at the end of each session to our volunteers and laps are recorded every week.  Five laps around the field is approximately 1 mile, which students will earn a special foot charm for their incentive necklace.

Typically, Running Club will begin/end 1-2 weeks of coming in/out of each school holiday break.  This allows for students and volunteers to get back into routines of school schedules.  Please check the school calendar for all running club dates.

In rare instances, Running Club may be cancelled due to high temperatures, poor air quality or winter conditions.  Parents will be notified of a cancellation by phone, through the school website and the Arroyo Seco Facebook page.  In general, we will try to cancel running club no later than 24 hours in advance when conditions are predicted to be unsuitable for running.

To sign up, students need to submit a permission form signed by a parent or guardian.  This form can be downloaded here and is also available on-site during Running Club.  Completed forms can be given to the student’s teacher, the office or to a Running Club parent volunteer.
