Franklin Elementary School

May 5th is the 41st Annual Franklin Fun Run. We will begin walking over to Franklin Park at 9am. We are so excited to be continuing this tradition!

The Fun-Run is a 5-kilometer road race in which almost all 1st-6th grade students participate. We will begin the race at 9:30 A.M. at Franklin Park (807 W 600 S). Some students run the entire course. Others walk or combine walking and running. The course can be walked in less than an hour by those who keep moving at a good pace. See the attached map for the route.

Medals are awarded to the first, second, and third place boys and girls for each grade level. These medals will be presented at the end-of-year award assembly. Only Franklin 1st – 6th grade students are eligible to win a medal. No student bikes, scooters, skateboards, or roller blades will be allowed.

Parents are invited to participate and run with their children. Parents may check in and get a name tag from the main table at the park on the day of the race. You may also come cheer students on along the route.

Most students will participate in the Fun Run, however if a child does not wish to participate, their parent may send a note with their child to give to the teacher to excuse their child from participating. The school will have a study hall for all those who are not running. Children attending study hall will have tasks for them to work on that will be provided by their teacher during the Fun Run (about 60 minutes). This is not intended to be a punishment.

Kindergarten will have their own Fun Run on May 12th. More information to come.

We are excited to continue this beloved Franklin tradition. Thank you!
