Kensington Hilltop Running Club is a voluntary before school activity for all students and their families.
The students run or walk laps on the lower yard and with each lap, their runner ID badge is scanned by one of our parent volunteers. Their distance is uploaded to a program and the students can track their progress and are awarded tokens on their badges as they hit milestones. Last year, we met our goal of running collectively from our school to Paris, France.
Research has found that physical activity before school enhances a child’s focus and concentration, improving their academic performance. The students have a great time and love being active with their classmates before school.
