Almost 300 Ramona and Julian elementary students attended the first of four races in the Quadruple Crown Race Series, held at James Dukes Elementary School on Nov. 7.

The Quadruple Crown Race Series is a combined effort of four sponsoring schools: James Dukes, Mt. Woodson, Barnett, and Ramona Community School.

“Our goal is to get all elementary students excited about staying active and give them a purpose in doing so,” said organizer Denise Beals.

“Regardless of their reason for running, we were amazed by the smiling faces at the starting line,” said coordinator Breeanna Purcell.

All elementary schools were represented in the first through sixth place finishers in the one-mile races. Top honors went to James Dukes and Mt Woodson schools, as each had 12 winners, and to Ramona Community School which had 14 winners.

Bradley, a Julian Elementary student, gave his thoughts about the afternoon race: “It was really good to get cross country experience. James Dukes is a great school for putting on the race.”

Each of the 282 runners earned participation ribbons for their efforts. Students who run all four races will earn a Quadruple Crown Race Series t-shirt in May 2013. Students can still register for the next race in February. Go to Eventbrite.com and search: Quadruple Crown Race Series in Ramona.
