Wye Running Club 2017/18

Check out the information below for details about running club at Wye School! Be sure to check this page for updates throughout the year.

Wednesday Morning Run Club

Our Wednesday morning run club has finished for the 2017-2018 year. Thank you to all the students and parents who were so supportive! Students developed stronger endurance, friendships, movement skills, and hopefully a stronger love of running!

Run Club will start back up in the spring, where our practices will move outdoors during the lunch hour. The exact date will be determined based on when the snow melts. These practices will be in preparation for the EIPS Relays that usually take place in early May. Students will need to listen to announcements for further information. 

Congrats to all of our run club participants!
