  • Students in first grade and older may run unaccompanied.  Kindergarten students need a parent with them for the first day.
  • Students must check in at the press box at the High School Track before they can count laps!
  • ALL STUDENTS may begin any time between 7:10 and 7:25.  No runners may begin after 7:25.  
  • Parents and Staff are welcome (and encouraged!) to join in!
  • Students will be given a card at the completion of each lap.  At the completion of the required lap count, students will check in to make sure the Day of Participation has been recorded.
  • Comfortable school clothes and sport shoes are appropriate for running.
  • ALL STUDENTS will be dismissed from the track at 7:40.  This will allow time to eat school breakfast; or they may take a sack breakfast to their respective school to eat in the lunchroom.
  • In case of bad weather, MMC will be cancelled.  I will send a Remind Notification by 6:45a.m. (text @morningmar to 81010 to sign up! Or to receive messages via email, send an email to [email protected].)
