On May 20, 2017, 9:00am, Rocky Mountain Classical Academy (RMCA) will hold its 2017 five-kilometer run for education. Mr. Wil Winter, Physical Education Teacher, has once more organized this year’s event. According to Mr. Winter, “One of our school’s most-anticipated events, even last year’s blizzard did not dampen competitors’ spirits. We still had 155 runners and walkers.” This year, Mr. Winter hopes for greater intra-District participation.
“Everyone wins. Adult registrations defray our cost and support wellness, fellowship, and athletics. Racers not from RMCA see half their adult registration fees refunded to their schools. This covers tee-shirt costs and helps fund all participating schools.”
“Runners or walkers should wear their school’s colors, because it adds a lot of spirit. Participants see how large our District is, and we each advertise our schools to people who don’t know us,” said Winter. New for this year, the top overall male and female finishers will each win a cash prize. This year’s race also features a free, Kid’s Fun Run 50-yard dash.
Participants will “Run for Education” at 9:00am on May 20, 2017, at Stetson Park, located next to Stetson Elementary School. The park’s address is4870 Jedediah Smith Rd, Colorado Springs, CO.
The adult registration fee is $20.00, and children under seventeen cost $10.00.
