IT'S THAT TIME OF THE YEAR!
Yep, We're BACK!
Your “CRAZY” Alton Darby and Darby Creek Elementary School Physical Education Teachers “Mr. Burkhart and Mr. Decker”
Are back with more “FUN” and “CHALLENGES” for ALL to experience!
What is the event: A kid oriented “Warrior Dash” type challenge course! The unique course will be designed to push each student to their limit with multiple obstacles and challenges along the way. Whether it's climbing over barriers, squeezing through tunnels, or squirming through mud -everyone is guaranteed to have a BLAST!
Ever wonder how the event got its LOGO?
It's easy to understand if you pick it apart:
AD = Alton Darby one of the schools targeted for the event
DC = Darby Creek the other school targeted for the event
Back in Back = where the event takes place (in the common green space behind the schools)
Warrior Dash = A challenging "FUN" one mile run opportunity for kids of ALL sizes, shapes and ages.
When: Mid morning on
October 12th, 2019
Why: The focus of this “DASH” is to bring two school communities together and give students an opportunity to get exercise in a “FUN” way!
Dash Information: This event is OPEN to Alton Darby Elementary School and Darby Creek Elementary School students who are currently enrolled in Kindergarten through fifth grade. Parents, siblings, and school staffs are also encouraged attend and participate.
Dash Location: Dash will be held (Back in Back) in the field between the schools.
Dash Fee: Bring a donation of at least one nonperishable food item. This years focus will be on individual servings of cereal. All food will be donated to organizations who supply food to our Hilliard City School families in need!
PLEASE DON'T FORGET A FOOD DONATION!
Start Times by Grade level: This will be a staggered start dash and student start time will depend on their grade level.
All students in the same grade level from both schools will meet at the starting area start at the following times:
Kindergarteners and First Graders 11:00 AM
Second and Third Graders 11:30 AM
Fourth and Fifth Graders 12:00 PM
ADE and DCE Alumni 12:30 pm
Each grade level will have 30 minutes to complete the course at least once. Students will be in small groups starting at the beginning of the course every 15-30 seconds. As students finish, they can return to the start line to go again as time allows. Parents and siblings are welcome to participate throughout the event when accompanied by an age appropriate “WARRIOR” during the specific times posted.
Parking: Both school parking lots will be available for use as well as temporary spots located in the fields behind the schools.
Clothes: Proper footwear is a must! Remember, what you wear is going to get muddy (this is NOT your typical race - if you participate, you will get muddy!). We'd recommend bringing a towel and a garbage bag to sit on for the ride home.
Come with a "WARRIOR ATTITUDE" and dress the part! Some of the best dressed Warriors who have made it through the DASH may end up possibly winning a prize.
