Frequently Asked Questions

How does running club work?

  • Students receive running cards in 25 mile increments (100 boxes).
  • Every time they complete a lap (.25 miles), they get a box marked.
  • They don’t have to run a lap to get credit; they just need to complete a lap. So they can walk, skip, hop, twirl, or crawl – whatever makes it fun for them.
  • Each time a student has completed 20 laps (5 miles) they earn a running shoe charm for their running club necklace.
  • When students complete a full card (25 miles) they get a special charm, and they’ll be recognized with a certificate at the next flag salute ceremony. 

Are there other prizes?

Yes! We want to reward students often for reaching milestones, so we have lots of awards besides the running charms:

- 50 miles: Carrillo Running Club wristband
- 100 miles: Water bottle and personalized banner to run through
- 200 miles: T-shirt/hat and personalized banner
- 300 miles: Medal and personalized banner
- 400 miles: Trophy and personalized banner
- 500 miles: Wooden plaque and personalized banner

When can I run?

  • Every day before school from 8:15 to 8:45, students can run, walk, skip, or jump around our running track!

Is there a kindergarten running program?

  • We have a separate program for kindergarteners: The Carrillo Junior Colts Running Club. Although similar to the upper grade program, it is administered by each kindergarten teacher and running times/days/frequency is up to each teacher.

Can I volunteer to help?

Yes! We love our volunteers! We always need parents to sign running cards. At this time, volunteers must prove their vaccination status and sign a district volunteer agreement. Please contact Sharon Byrne if you are interested (sharonbyrne03@yahoo.com). 

Who do I contact with questions?

Sharon Byrne heads up our program. Contact her at sharonbyrne03@yahoo.com with any questions.
