The Happy Valley Run Club was started by the Parent Club in Fall of 2022 after recognizing a need for after school programs and physical fitness. The Run Club is a parent coached program that has 2-3 sessions, 8 weeks long per school year. As of Fall 2023 there have been approximately 100 athletes who have participated in the program. Aside from running, athletes learn, through experiential education, about a variety of topics such as how to fuel their body for exercise, hydration, proper clothing for the weather, muscle groups, when we use them and how we get stronger, dynamic movement, functional fitness and teamwork. Run Club athletes use personal QR codes to track individual distances and celebrate milestones as a team. Most importantly the #1 rule of Run Club is to HAVE FUN!
