Nursery School continues 1/10th-Miler tradition

The Randolph College Nursery School (RCNS) held its annual 1/10th-Miler race this morning to celebrate Lynchburg’s 10 Miler race and cap off a week of fitness and health education.

The students entered the gymnasium in the Randolph Athletics and Dance (RAD) Center to the applause of their families, teachers, and other friends who came to cheer them on.

After singing some traditional RCNS songs, the “senior class” (the 4- and 5-year-old students) warmed up for the race with jumping jacks, pushups, and stretches.

Then they lined up at one end of the gym and sprinted to the other end. The “juniors” (the Nursery School’s 3- and 4-year-old class) helped cheer for them.

Each of the seniors received a medal for their participation. After the race, they enjoyed granola bars and cool water in the RAD Center lobby.
