The TMS Track/Running Club Team

Most of us know about our school’s Volleyball team or the upcoming Soccer team but have you heard of our new Running club? Yes, that’s right, a new sport for you to try out. If track and field is something you excel at or would like to excel at then this extracurricular might just be for you!

In addition to other interesting factors, joining the TMS running club has many benefits. The first benefit of joining the TMS running club is that it provides you with good exercise which helps strengthen cardiovascular health and therefore increases your endurance. Secondly, it also helps you to practice good sportsmanship and mental health. For example, if you ever feel lesser than your opponent, you have to learn to stay optimistic and have a positive attitude towards other athletes despite them being your opponent. On top of that joining a running club helps allow you to practice time management by having to balance out self-care, homework, and running practices simultaneously. Lastly, running clubs will prepare you for high school track which can potentially lead to college recruitment and scholarships.


All in all, joining the TMS running club would bring many great benefits, experiences, and personal growth. In addition, it also promotes an encouraging school community and a healthy way of living. If this new activity checked all of your boxes or piqued your interest, consider joining the TMS running club because you might find that this is your next favorite thing to do!
