Hello, team! Thank you for picking up your team shirts today. The coaching team is so excited to start this season next week! Please remember to write your runner’s name on the back of the team shirt with a permanent marker. This helps us learn names. Have your runner wear their shirt each Monday for practice.


I am unable to have another pick up day as I am going out of town. If you were unable to pick up your team shirt today, I will be leaving them with your student’s teacher tomorrow morning. They should be coming home with your child tomorrow or the next day.


We are also offering Alderwood Run Club shorts for $15. These are optional. Click here if you would like to order: SHORTS.


Looks like rain is in the forecast on the day of our first practice (Feb 26). We will be watching closely and check here for any updates regarding practice cancelation. 


** Welcome to Alderwood Run Club **


The Alderwood Owls Run Club is a ten week training and racing program for students who attend Alderwood Elementary School. The club will meet to train once a week after school (there will be no training sessions during the week of spring break or any holidays).


The training program will commence on February 26, 2024 and conclude April 29, 2024. The final one mile KROC race will be Saturday, May 4, 2024. The program is designed to teach a healthy and active lifestyle, which includes regular exercise, good nutrition habits, and the positive aspects of healthy competition. We will incorporate our school values while we train and work together as a team. Our main goal is for each student to run a “progressive marathon” in which they will run at least 25.2 miles during their practices/training with the final mile of their one mile KROC race at the end of the program. Students will average 1.5 miles at practice and 1 mile at home each week.
