The 4th and 5th grade students in the Oak Ridge Running Club laced up for their first 5K on Saturday, October 20th. These students not only built endurance, but also friendships as they trained many hours after school with friends and some of their favorite staff members. On the day of the race, Oak Ridge students were also joined by students from Dorn, Sorrick, Glen Oaks, and Conrady, as well as many parents and community members that came to support them.
Although the course proved to be a difficult one, students persevered up and down the steep hills in their community, some of them even placing in their age brackets. What a feeling of community as they crossed the finish line and saw many community members cheering them on!
