On a warm, sunny fall afternoon, kindergarten through 6th grade students participated in the annual apple run hosted by the Fridley High School Cross Country team. This year’s run took place on Tuesday, October 11 at Commons Park.
Cross country team members showed student participants how to do dynamic stretches and warm ups before their race, guiding them through a variety of exercises. The races were divided into different grade levels, K-2, 3-4 and 5-6.
During each race, the cross country team members led the runners on the course and helped them get to the finish line. Once students crossed the finish line, they were rewarded with an apple. Families were there to cheer on their students and enjoy an apple too.
