Adventure Run Draws Hundreds of ISD Students
More than 450 students participated in the first ever ISD Running Club Adventure Run on May 9. The 1.25 mile course on the middle school campus featured nine obstacles. Runners scaled high jump mats in the Boulder Climb, tested their balance on the Timber Tightrope and rounded out the race with Tire Turmoil.
ISD Youth Activities Coordinator Chase Schneider says “We’ve never had a real end-of-the-year race. This is their reward for being at their school’s running club during the season. It’s been a great year and we are proud to offer this opportunity to our students.”
Six hundred ISD students took part in ISD running clubs this year. The ISD designed its own curriculum for the program, which includes lessons on nutrition, fitness and character development. The club is free to the kids, offered after school for eight weeks each semester, one or two days per week.
