Cellcom Deadline Approaching

Glenbrook Runners are working hard and are currently running 3 1/2 to 4 miles as we gear up for our first big race of the season- the Cellcom Luv2Run 5K, which will be next weekend, Saturday, May 21st. If your child is interested in participating and has not yet registered, please do so by Sunday as the deadline is May 15th! Here is the link to registration information.

I will be sending information home this week with your child regarding various race day specifics (I'll also post the info here on the blog), but please remember that it is your responsibility to pick up race packets (which will contain your child's race day number and their t-shirt) either Friday from 3-7 pm or Saturday morning between 7-8:30 in the Lambeau Field Atrium.

Happy Running! We're looking forward to celebrating our successes this weekend. Keep your fingers crossed for great weather!

Also, if your child is interested in continuing their running, please see the Local Race section in the right hand sidebar. The Polka Trot 5K is coming up July 23rd and would be a wonderful and fun race to participate in.

Race Registration and Other Info

Getting ready for a 2.5 mile run with some stretching
We are officially up and running (pun intended) and are again close to 60 student runners strong! Wow!!!! 

 A couple of quick updates...

1st- Cellcom registration is open! To receive the $11 reduced rate, your child must register by May 15th (There are no exceptions or extensions to this date). This reduced rate is only applicable for students training with our group. Unfortunately, siblings and parents are not able to register with this special code. Click here for official online registration instructions. Race packets for this race must be picked up by you on Friday night before the race at Lambeau Field.

2nd- Bellin registration is also now open. The deadline is May 2nd to receive reduced rate ($15), Free Bellin Kids for Running t-shirt AND to have your child's race packet (official race t-shirt and bib #) delivered directly to school. School: Glenbrook,  Password: 117

3rd- With the weather getting nicer (fingers crossed it stays decent) please be sure your child has proper attire for running- shorts, tshirt, running shoes. We've had some students showing up in jeans which are not only difficult to run in but also are very warm as our mileage is increasing weekly. With the mornings being cooler, your child may want to throw a pair of shorts in their backpack to change into after school.

4th- Just a reminder to check the training calendar for pick up times. We ask that you please be prompt in picking up your child. 

5th- If you'd like to receive emails when this blog is updated, please fill in your email address to the right. You can unsubscribe from these emails at any time.

Time to dust off your running shoes!

Wahoo! It's that time of year once again... time to dust off your running shoes and get ready for the Glenbrook Runner's Club!!

Glenbrook Runner's Club will start
Tuesday, April 5th, 2016 

We hope that you will find this blog to be an informational tool for you. You will find our training calendar, run information and more all in one place for you. Updates will be posted as they are available. Please sign up with your email on the right hand side of the blog to receive update notifications.

The Glenbrook Runner's Club 
will follow the same structure as in year's past.
  • Training is open to students in grades 3, 4, and 5. 
  • Training runs will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school at 3:00. 
  • Pick up time will vary week to week depending on our mileage. Please check the training calendar for approximate nightly pick up times. We ask that you please be courteous to our volunteers and be punctual in picking your child up. 
  • Parents and family members are welcome to train with us! Please let us know if you are interested in running with us, walking, slow jogging at the end of the group, or monitoring intersections or if you are able to help provide water stations, snacks, or even help at "Race Day". Any and all help is appreciated and makes this experience better and safer for our students.
  • Respectful, responsible, and safe behavior is expected during training
  • Dress appropriately for the weather (sweatpants and jackets will likely be needed the first couple of weeks) 
  • We run outside rain or shine (if severe weather is in the area we will run indoors)
  • Students are required to stay for post-run stretching (pick up times have been estimated based on past experience. Please be patient as we finish our post run stretching as this is a critical piece of preventing injuries)

Our group will be training for both the Bellin Run (10K) and the Cellcom (5K). Your child has the option of participating in one or both of these races. If your child isn’t interested in participating in the races, they are still more than welcome to come and train with us on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Bellin Run

Congratulations to all of our Glenbrook Runners who took part in the Bellin 10K (6.2 miles) at the beginning of June. There were a lot of smiles on race day and for good reason... this group worked hard to build their stamina and finishing was a great accomplishment!! The coaches couldn't be prouder of all of you for the hard work and dedication you put in over the past months. We hope that you continue to keep running.  The Pulaski Polka Trot is coming up in just a few weeks... and it's only a 5K. Who's going to be there? You will find a link to the registration info on the sidebar. 
We hope to see everyone back next year! Have a great summer!!

Cellcom 5K a success!!

What a wonderful day for a run! It was a bit more humid than what we had been use to running in, but the temps were great and the weather was beautiful. I saw lots of smiles before and after the race and many kiddos saying that it was awesome and they wanted to do it again next year! That's success!!

Here are a couple of the group shots from this morning, including one of our silly ones. Enjoy!

Working hard to tackle the Bellin 10K next! 
Run Strong, Run Happy Guys!
