Many of of area elementary schools have Run Clubs
leading up to the race. This is a wonderful way for schools to get students involved in the excitement of the race and physical fitness!
Students log their miles running before school and the school with the most students wins The Grey Ghost Cup.
A huge thank you to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for sponsoring and providing this year's mileage logs, after school snack ideas and mileage tokens to the schools for the kids that run.
Schools participating will also receive a check from Rotary Club of Spring Hill/Thompson's Station for $3 for each child that registers for the run from their school to be used to purchase gym equipment.
