I am a firm believer in running so I offer the opportunity to run without pressure with a program called Running Club. You may join as a running club member with the expectation of running on your own and participating with the track team when they meet at Mary Park. During the 10-week season, you can strive to reach the marathon mark (26 miles), half century mark (50 miles) or century mark (100 miles). The miles that you ran during any prior year count toward meeting these goals.
Running Team (Track and Field):
Track and field is a richly unique sport that promotes both individual performance and team chemistry. The track season, along with running club activities will begin March 11, 2019. Practices will take place at the RBHS stadium track, when available, and Mary Park on other days. New this year will be local meets at Triton College on Friday evenings in April and May. Other meets will take place on Saturday or Sunday during April and May at various sites in the Chicago area.
A formal sign-up will take place on the Sunday of Catholic School week. However, you can join the running club or running team at any time. Runners in grades 3-8 are eligible. Both the running club and team are co-ed. Track meets segregate the team as varsity and junior varsity, and boys and girls. I believe you will find the running club and the running team enjoyable and it will enhance your other abilities.
