Running Club

Coach: Alison Crocker

Running is a fundamental human activity like no other. Running Outdoors is an independent PE course, meaning there is no fixed schedule or location for your runs. Run on your own or with friends. The only requirement is that you run twice a week—you decide the pace, the distance, and the terrain. Explore some of the amazing trails and routes around Reed. Open to runners of all abilities. 

Tuesday 3:10pm-6pm IN-PERSON

Please take note: Students are only allowed to receive a maximum COMBINED of two (2) of the nondirected/guided PE classes. These include Off-Campus PE, Meditation, Swim Fitness, Independent Climb, Community Engagement, and Running Club/Running Outdoors. Once a student earns 2 credits in any of these classes any additional classes in this category will not be counted towards their six (6) total required for graduation. 

After earning two (2) nondirected/guided PE credits students are welcome to continue to take any of these classes as they prefer but will not earn additional credit.-- but otherwise you can take as many of the directed classes as you'd like!

Ultimate Frisbee Club

Coaches: Aaron Hursey, Kiarra Ko-Madden

Ultimate Frisbee is a non-contact sport for all bodies and skill levels involving throwing and catching a disc. Ultimate is an excellent athletic outlet with seven players per side and continuous substitutions  – running, sprinting, jumping, laying out, and more are all major parts of the game. A unique and defining element of ultimate, Spirit of the Game places the responsibility of fair play solely on the athletes themselves, reinforcing mutual respect and trust between opponents, communication and conflict resolution skills. The Reed Ultimate Frisbee team plays as an open/mixed team with the goal of competing in 2-3 tournaments per semester as well as the D-III college sectionals in April of 2024.
