Calling all runners! It’s time to grab your running shoes and hit the road!
Elementary school students from throughout Elk Grove Unified are invited to participate in the 6th Annual Falcon Fun Run at 4:15 p.m. on Friday, November 2, 2012, sponsored by the Katherine L. Albiani Middle School cross-country team.
Students in kindergarten will run a ¼-mile course, grades 1 and 2 will run a ½-mile course, grades 3 and 4 will run a ¾-mile course and grades 5 and 6 will run a 1-mile course. Awards will be given to the top three boys and top three girls in each division. Post race refreshments will also be provided.
“The cross-country team is very excited to sponsor this event for the sixth year,” said Traci Seto, a math teacher at Albiani and race director of the Falcon Fun Run. “This event not only allows the team to stay active in the community, but also gives them a chance to introduce the sport of running to younger students.”
