Roberts Running Club News- November 2017

I just wanted to post some updates before the holidays:

1) Running Club tee shirts will arrive before the winter break. I will send an email to let you know when we are handing them out (possibly the last day of Running Club before the break). We will have plenty of sizes for everyone, so there's no need to order a specific size for your kid.

2) We will also be handing out our 1st of 2 incentive prizes to the kids before the winter break. It's a surprise, but everyone will want one to show off their Roberts Running Club pride! All kids who have registered online ( will receive one and I'll send out an email when we set the date (likely on the same day as the shirts).

3) It's running season in Houston, so there are lots of fun runs and 5Ks to sign up for if you and your child are ready. The next big one is the Turkey Trot 5K (on Thanksgiving morning near the Galleria- Lots of Roberts families turn out for this one! Wear your old Roberts Running Club shirt if you've got one! If you can't make the Turkey Trot, here's a list of other races:

4) Coach A has instituted a new incentive for Running Club members who are interested in running competitively. The girl and boy with the fastest (and verifiable) 5K times this year will win a Garmin watch. All you need to do is email me your child's name, time, and link to 5K race results and we will announce the winners in May!

Running Club Cancelled on Thursday, October 5th!

Get a little more sleep on Thursday, October 5th, because Running Club is canceled due to Coach A not being available that morning.

If you haven't already, please register your child on the Running Club website:  

All funds raised through registration pay for club t-shirts, incentive prizes and other Running Club-related expenses. Only 24 families have registered so far and we have at least 70 kids coming out daily, so don't forget to register! 

Lastly, don't forget the contest to design this year's t-shirt. Half page drawings are due at the next meeting on Tuesday, October 10th and the winning drawing will go on the back of our 2017 t-shirts.

Running Club starts Tuesday, September 26th at 7 am under the covered area

The Roberts Running Club was founded in 2014 by PE Coach Jack Alexander to build a strong foundation of physical activity, camaraderie and a healthy lifestyle in our children. Last year was a huge success and we owe a HUGE thank you to last year's committee: Coach Alexander and Istra Bauza and the many more volunteers that made Running Club possible!

This year's committee welcomes back Coach Alexander and Erin Fox. We look forward to an exciting year of health and fitness!

Please check back on this blog for updates, weather cancellations, community race information, etc. We are updating the sign up forms on the PTO website, so be sure to go to the PTO website later in the week.

Running Club Schedule:
Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:00am-7:30am - starts Tuesday, September 26th 

At 7:30, the kids go to the cafeteria for breakfast and to wait for the class bell at 7:55

Also, we have 1 community race announcement: West U Halloween Dash 5K Race and Kids' Fun Run on October 28th! This is a great run, close-by, and as an added incentive, the organizer has promised to donate $5 for each new registration from Roberts from today until September 25th to Baker-Ripley for Harvey relief!
