Running Club

Come run with us!

Running Club is a free program that is open to ALL students at Colfax Elementary as well as parents and siblings. Running Club is offered Monday through Friday from 7:40 - 8:00 AM. Come run around the track before school starts. Get the blood flowing to your brain to start the day off strong and clear-headed!

Every Colfax student is already enrolled in Running Club, and each student has an individually bar-coded card ready and waiting to be used. To be a part of Running Club, your child doesn’t need to do anything other than show up, find his/her card, and run. The individual cards are scanned after each lap around the track, and the data from the scanners is uploaded weekly to a designated website that keeps track of the miles. Results will be posted regularly at school, and parents will also be able to check the website to see how many miles their children have run over the past weeks and months. In previous school years, Colfax students have completed the equivalent of a marathon, 50 miles, 75 miles, and even over 100 miles. Running even just 1 or 2 laps a day adds up over time. Run with friends! Make new friends at Running Club. It is truly an excellent way to way to start the school day.


1) Parents can get access to reports online that show how far their child(ren) have run (there’s a bar graph, statistics - it’s cool) that is uploaded and changing weekly. The kids will be so motivated when they see their results.


2) There is scientific evidence, including recent studies of classes that ran before going into class and classes that didn’t, that kids perform better in school when they have exercised before class starts.
