“Run for Readers”

Third Annual “Run for Readers” at Scott M. Ellis Elementary School

We welcome you to join the fun at our Third Annual 5K Run for Readers run/walk on Saturday, October 4, 2014!  Participants will enjoy a great time with family and friends as they travel a 5K course on the country roads that surround our lovely community.  All ages and ability levels are welcome, but if a 5K is more than some young children are ready for, a Spartan Sprint is scheduled to take place on the elementary campus at 8:00 am.

The first 500 paid participants in our 5K Run for Readers will receive a free t-shirt, so register early!   Proceeds from this event will be used to support after-school clubs for elementary students, and to purchase books for our elementary classrooms.  The Spartan Sprint is free, but all runners are required to complete the attached registration form.  (Anyone wanting a t-shirt must register for the 5K.) 

If running makes you hungry, the Greenville Educational Foundation is sponsoring a breakfast after the race.  Tickets can be purchased in advance, which is listed as an option on the Run for Readers registration form.

We look forward to seeing you at our Run for Readers, Spartan Sprint, breakfast, and other school sponsored events.  Families are also invited to visit a number of other special events that are planned as part of the annual Greenville Day celebration (call the Greenville Town Hall for more information). Please review the attached documents for further information.
