CREEKSIDE CAT RACE

The annual Creekside Cat Race is quickly approaching, Saturday, September 28th beginning at 8:30 am in the Village of West Clay at 12775 Horseferry Rd. Carmel, IN 46032.

For those of you not familiar with the Cat Race, it is a 5K walk/run family and community event with 1000+ runners/walkers that helps to raise funds for Creekside athletics and activities.  Last year, with the funds from the Cat Race, we offered 30 different clubs which were attended by more than 500 Creekside students, reconditioned athletic equipment, purchased team jerseys, maintained the facilities, hired event workers and officials, and provided resources to recognize our scholar athletes.

Registration Competition Among Elementary Schools - To increase excitement at the elementary level, we're having a registration competition among West Clay, Towne Meadow, and College Wood.  The grade level at each school that has the most participants registered for the race will win an activities day at Creekside with the Wellness classes!  All you have to do is register using the link below, choose College Wood and select the appropriate grade level. 

To be guaranteed a t-shirt, please register by September 9th.
