photo by Matt Roth.Friday, May 11, 2012...AFYA Mile Race Day! .Pre-race Activities (beginning at approx 8:30).Students are in classrooms eating breakfast, putting on numbers, etc...The Race: starting line is the corner of Harford Road and Chesterfield Ave. Finish line is the school yard. We have about 320 students running in grades 6, 7, and 8. So that means about 12 groups of students will run the race between 9 and 11:45. ..Starting line: in Herring Run Park at the corner of Harford Rd. and Chesterfield Ave. Classes walk up there to gather and stretch before their start. They start at 15 minute intervals...The course: winds through a path in Herring Run park (probably hard to get photos here)..Cardio Hill: this is toward the end of the race; it's where the race path comes out from the woods. Students run up the grassy hill. The top of the hill is at the corner of Chesterfield and Cardenas...Finish line: on the school yard..Once students finish the race they work their way through a series of stations and stay to cheer on their peers...Post-race Activities.In classrooms signing numbers, getting t-shirts, snacks, attend Health Expo (this is in a big room on the first floor; eighth graders did health projects)
