The Marathon starts Monday!

The spring portion of the marathon will take place April 23-27 and April 30-May 4. If your child has not yet participated, there’s still time for them to complete the half-marathon by running or walking four laps per day.

Students who complete the half marathon (39 laps) and those who complete the full marathon (78 laps) will receive a prize. Teachers and family members are welcome to join the fun! Come walk/run beside your child to show your support, or encourage them by volunteering to record laps (see sign-up information below). To watch your child’s progress, visit the lap counter.

Please have your child dress appropriately during the dates of the marathon. We recommend layers for the upper body and sneakers for footwear. Please refrain from sending participating children to school wearing open-toed shoes during the marathon for safety reasons.

You can volunteer to help in 3 easy steps. Go to signup.com/go/csVVzJj. Enter your email address (you will not need to register an account with signup.com). Choose your spots and signup.com will send you an automated confirmation and reminder.
