Tashua Running Club


Dear Tashua Students:

The 2017-2018 season of our Tashua Elementary School Running Club kicks is in full swing!  We are excited about another great year of getting our miles in together!

The Running Club is still going strong and heading toward our Final Mile event.

  • March thru May: Rod Dixon Kids Marathon Program where students will complete 25 miles and a 1 mile marathon with all Trumbull elementary schools.
  • The Final Mile Marathon will take place on May 20, 2018 at 10am at THS.
  • Here is the registration form if you have not already signed up: Download Form

Here’s how the Mileage Tracking program works::

Run / Jog / Walk: you can do this at school during recess or at home on your own.  You earn a sneaker charm for every 5 miles completed

  1. Stay after school: run from 3:30-4:00 (sign up required) with parent volunteers tracking mileage and cheering kids on
  2. Run at school: run laps around the blacktop at recess (2 laps around blacktop = ¼ mile)
  3. Run at home: run at home and ask a parent to help measure your distance

Record Your Miles: miles should be submitted online using the following form Tashua Running Club Mileage Tracking. You will need to enter the total miles you completed each week along with your first name, last name, grade and teacher

Reminder: this program is sponsored by the Tashua PTA.  It is VOLUNTARY and is for the purpose of fun, health and wellness. It is not mandatory for the school curriculum
