    Are you ready to
    Accept the Challenge™? We are!



    The 100 Mile Club® was started 28 years ago by Kara Lubin, a teacher from Southern California. 100 Mile Club® is now a non-profit organization whose sole mission is to provide to all individuals the opportunity to experience fitness and TRUE personal success by Accepting the Challenge of running (or walking) 100 miles at school during a single school year.  Students use and experience life skills based on The Pyramid of Success, designed by the legendary basketball coach, teacher, family friend, and 100 Mile Club® supporter, Coach John Wooden. 

    Coal Mountain has Accepted the Challenge, and we are so excited! Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grade members meet at the track anytime between 7:10 -7:35 a.m. to run/walk. Once students arrive at school, they check in with their teacher, drop of their backpack, and then go to the track to run.  When your child reaches 25 miles, he/she will be presented with a fantastic t-shirt that is designed to show off your child’s accomplishments throughout the year. 

    Through the journey toward 100 miles, your child will practice personal goal setting, team spirit, perseverance, poise, confidence, and honest self-evaluation. As your child reaches other MILEstones, we all celebrate together.  When your child reaches 100 miles, he or she will be awarded with a beautiful gold medal at our Year-End Medal Ceremony where every participant will receive a special certificate celebrating their total miles run.

    In 100 Mile Club, our Miners are:

    Responsible - Keep hands and bodies to self
    Engaged - Try their best and have fun with friends
    Capable - Make good choices and give 100% effort
    Kind - Are kind in words and actions


    When expectations are not met, consequences include:
    First offense will be a verbal warning
    Second offense will be a 2-week break from the 100 Mile Club
    Third offense may result in removal from the 100 Mile Club

    We look forward to celebrating your child’s accomplishments both on the track and in the classroom.  See you on the field!!
