Parents, we need you!  Please consider volunteering! No experience is required, just lots of encouragement.  With numerous runners expected to participate, every volunteer makes a difference in our program.  We will need volunteers at the races, too.

Landsharks can wear their yellow race shirt to school on race days with uniform bottoms.

Please have your child use the restroom and make sure they wear running shoes and are tied tight before they come to the race.

Practices:  We will meet after school in the library at 3:45 pm. Runners have an opportunity to eat a quick healthy snack before heading out for practice, provided by you. Runners will leave their backpacks outside on the Playground. At practice we will stretch, warm-up, assemble by ability groups, run, and cool down. Please pick-up your runner at 4:30 pm.  Please have a water bottle labeled with your child’s name at each practice.  Practices are cancelled if the wind chill is less than 30 degrees, and if it is physically snowing or raining at 3:00pm. If practices are cancelled you will be contacted by email, and an announcement will be made school-wide.

Dress for Success:  Runners need to dress according to the weather. We encourage them to change out of their school uniforms into running clothes before practice begins. Younger students will be released to the bathrooms closest to their classrooms. There will be a Coach or Volunteer who will be there to help guide the kids from the restrooms to the library.

Please outfit according to these guidelines:

55 degrees and warmer – Running shoes, t-shirt, shorts, and optional running hat.

45-54 degrees – Running shoes, t-shirt, sweatshirt/windbreaker, shorts or sweat pants, and optional running hat.

44 degrees and cooler – Running shoes, t-shirt, sweatshirt/windbreaker, sweat pants, running hat/head band and gloves.  If it is windy, dress one cooler level down.

 Landsharks Running Club encourages you to purchase running shoes for your runners. Please check your current running shoes for wear.  Expect to pay at least $50 for a good shoe that will last for the fall and spring series if just worn for running.  Buy them a little large, not tight.  We have two running stores sponsoring our program and providing a 15% discount for Landshark runners.
