At I.S. 223 are raising money to enter our Young Runners in local races and send some to the Running School for a week this summer See More

EVENT DATE Jun 29, 2014


At I.S. 223, 4200 16th Avenue, we have a Young Runners Program, which is affiliated with the New York Road Runners. We practice two days after school and participate in New York Road Runners. We have approximately 35 students participating on the team. In general, almost everyone who has joined our team has stayed on the team. We have eighth grades that started running with us in the sixth grade. In addition, we have a few alumni students, who continue to participate in runs and practices.
The goal of the program is for students to develop runners who can complete four-mile and 5k runs in less than 8 minutes a mile. However not every student on the team is at this time capable of running sub 8 minutes miles. So our real goal is for every student to complete and enjoy each run and develop discipline and healthy existence.
