Running Team

LPA’s Running Team

LPA’s running team practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00-4:00. Our season runs from late August until late November. The goal of the running program is to encourage students to exercise and become better runners.

We participate in a number of meets with other middle schools in the district. Meets are not mandatory for runners who want to be on the team, but they are a great deal of fun! It is the parents’ responsibility to get students to and from the meets and supervise their child at the meets. In the past, many parents have carpooled to get to and from the meets.

At the meets, the runners compete in a 2 mile cross country race. It is important for runners to arrive 45 minutes prior to the start of a meet so that we have time to get them registered and for them to stretch out.

Our awesome team Mom is Mrs. Kinchen!! You can contact her via email at: [email protected]. She also manages a Shutterfly site which contains information about the team and is where you can find the most up to date information. The URL for this site is:
