NEW IVY HILL FAMILY RUNNING CLUB!: Join us on Fridays until May 19th @ 5pm for Spring Running Club — in a new format! Tie your laces, parents, and join us for a family neighborhood loop! All ages are welcome. We will meet on the blacktop at Ivy, weather permitting, and families can run at their own pace through a neighborhood loop. Do you have tiny kindergartners with short legs? Just run the field or a short loop around the school! Are you bringing 5th graders who want to do cross country at Thomas? Challenge your neighbors to a long-distance race through the neighborhood! You set the pace, you set the distance! All abilities are welcome. Questions? Email Jennifer.firstname.lastname@example.org. **Please note: This is NOT a drop-off event. There is no adult supervision for unattended children. You are responsible for your children’s safety. If your children run at different paces, you might even want to bring TWO adults! Be sure to bring lots of water, and dress for the weather! Get ready to have a lot of fresh air and FUN!
