Fleet Feet Tulsa visits Catalayah

CLAREMORE — Fleet Feet Sports of Tulsa visited with the Catalayah Elementary Running Club Wednesday to promote the upcoming Cinco De Mayo Run, a goal race that includes participation from area school running clubs and Fleet Feet’s youth running program, Zoomerangs.

“Our goal is to get students excited about running in the huge family event,” said Maegan Bartel, event coordinator for Fleet Feet Sports.

All public and private schools across Green Country are invited to attend. The top three schools with the most student participation, will receive a prize.”

Bartel said she has traveled to several schools throughout the Tulsa area, and Catalayah’s Running Club is one of the largest programs she has seen.

Catalayah teachers and parents established the afterschool club in 2012.

Physical Education teacher Jeannie Seidel said she has a personal love for running and wanted her students to experience the accomplishment that comes with completing a run.

The club has grown to now include more than 100 students.

Throughout the school year, student members accumulate miles and earn points toward foot charms.

For every five miles ran, a student earns a charm for his or her necklace. Several members have earned perpetual plaques for running a total of 100 miles.

Catalayah will have the opportunity to further their goal race experience by participating in the Cinco De Mayo 5K and Fun Run.

The fun run will take place at 6:30 p.m. followed by the 5K at 7 p.m. at Veteran’s Park, located at East 18th Street and Main Street in Tulsa.

Age group awards will be available after the race at the Awards Tent near the Spirit Bank Event Center parking lot.
