Bryant Running Club begins next Fri, Sept 21

Bryant Running Club is open to all students, grades K-5, who are interested in running. Runners will meet with a volunteer coach to stretch, play running games, and run laps at their own pace. We will be meeting on the track and field at the back of the Bryant school playground from 2:25-3:10 p.m. on Fridays from September 21st to October 26th.  Another session will be offered in the spring semester.

Registration: We will not be collecting a club fee this year, however all runners must register and sign a waiver ahead of time. Fill out your registration form and waiver online.

Interested in volunteering with the Bryant Running Club? We are always looking for volunteers to help sign kids in and out, distribute tokens, and help facilitate activities. For more information contact volunteer lead Kim Bernier or coach Zosia Brown.
