The SISU Endurance Team (SET) Running Club is starting it’s third season on Monday, June 7 from 6:00-7:00 pm at Miner’s Memorial Park (after having to cancel the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic).
The 2019 club included 10 local runners who stepped up to lead the popular weekly running program, which was attended by 29 youth participants. The group met for 1-hour a week at the Miner’s Memorial Park, with a goal in mind to promote the sport of running while focusing on developing healthy habits.
The 2021 season will be similar to years past, but each week will take place at in a different location (a schedule will be handed out at the first session). The SET Running Club is open to youth grades 5-12. Cost is $10 per person and includes a t-shirt.
NEW THIS YEAR…thanks to funds raised at the INKY LUNTA 74 CHALLENGE (an event created in honor of SET Running Club volunteer, Gary Engstrom) members will be entered into raffle drawings for a chance to win some really great prizes!
