A few minutes after the last bell rings at Treasure Mountain Junior High, you might see students racing radio-controlled cars, solving Rubik's Cubes or making crafts. All of those, and more, are part of Treasure Mountain's after-school program.

The Mustang After School Academy, or MASA, as it is called, began last school year and already has 11 active clubs, said Amy Jenkins, assistant principal of Treasure Mountain. She said that the clubs allow students to participate in activities that they are interested in while in an informal setting with one of their teachers.

The Park City Running club is training for its first track season, and founder Rachel Taylor said the idea of the relay is looming large in little runners' minds. The club's enthusiasm for passing the baton made adding the ninth annual Running with Ed race, a 38-mile costumed race around Park City, a natural fit among the seven other USA Track and Field races the club will participate in this year.
