2nd Annual
Mechanicsville Elementary
Fun Run and Obstacle Course

Friday, September 29th, 2017
Rain date: Thursday, October 5th, 2017

Again this year, we will have 2 courses around MES.
  • The outside track will be for running, walking or racing.
  • The inside track will have obstacles for the students to venture through and challenge themselves.
The children can participate in either track or both.

The students will complete as many laps as possible around our ¼ mile track and obstacle course in an hour. 

All grades, Pre-K through 5th, will participate.

The event takes place during your child’s specials.

All parents and caregivers are encouraged to come watch their children participate in this event!

PRIZES will again be awarded this year including the opportunity to be SLIMMED! ( Click here to see prize details )

Important Notes:
  • Water will be provided for all the students.
  • Please make sure they bring a labeled water bottle and eat a healthy breakfast!
  • Please have students dress appropriately for the weather.  If it is cold, the children are encouraged to dress in layers since they may warm up as they participate in the Fun Run.
This years theme is Under Construction.  Come dig, climb build and construct with the MES family.
