May 4 was the last day of our Spring Km Club.  A huge thanks to all our parent volunteers for helping to make this another successful season of Km Club – from set-up to field supervision; stampers, counters and concessions sales – we couldn’t have done it without you.

24 – 35 km = bronze medal

36 – 47 km = silver medal

48 – 60 km = gold medal

61+ km = trophy
