UPCOMING 5K - On Sunday, June 2, 2019 , the Atholton Elementary School PTA will be hosting its 9th Annual “Panthers Pounding the Pavement” 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk. The event takes place in Columbia’s Allview Estates neighborhood in Kings Contrivance, and begins at 9:00 a.m. in front of AES. This annual event attracts many families with children ranging from infants to teenagers and, given the challenging course, many recreational runners.

Proceeds from the event support educational and cultural activities for our students. Each of the past eight AES Run/Walk events attracted over 350 walkers and runners. After the race, join us on the AES black top for music, breakfast, and raffle prizes!!

Register using the form attached, or online via . Please note that each participant must complete a waiver at packet pick up. The registration deadline is May 15, 2019. Any registrations received after that date will not receive a race shirt.

This year’s event promises to be another wonderful opportunity to join with other AES families and staff in celebrating our children and family fitness. We look forward to seeing you on race day!

Thank you in advance for your support!
