3rd Annual Knightathlon
Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Come one, come all to the 2020 Norton Knightathlon - a run/bike/run triathlon style challenge!
Date: Saturday March 28, 2020 (rain date April 4, 2020)
Location: Norton Elementary
The challenge has two divisions: Kinder-1st and 2nd-6th. The K-1st graders are challenged to run 1/2 mile around the school grounds. The 2nd-6th graders are challenged to a three-leg event including a 1 mile run, a 1.5 mile bike ride through the neighborhood, and a final 1/2 mile run around the school to the finish line. (**2nd Graders have the option to run 1/2 mile instead of 1 mile for the first leg, select the (2nd Grade Only) option when registering).
Students may choose to partner with one friend and complete the challenge as a team. If you choose to partner with a friend, one student will run the first leg, the other student will bike the second leg, and then both students finish the challenge together running the final 1/2 mile leg to the finish line. Please provide your partners name in the box when you register.
Here are the options for challenges by grade level.
- 2nd - 6th Grade: 1 mile run, pick up your bike and ride 1.5 miles through the neighborhood, park your bike after the ride and run 1/2 mile run around the school to the finish line. A medal and popsicle will be presented at the finish line.
- 2nd Grade Only: 1/2 mile run, pick up your bike and ride 1.5 miles through the neighborhood, park your bike after the ride and run 1/2 mile run around the school to the finish line. A medal and popsicle will be presented at the finish line.
- Kinder - 1st Grade: 1/2 mile run around the school grounds to the finish. A medal and popsicle will be presented at the finish line.
