Sponsored by the County Line PTA, the County Line Marathon is an incentive program that promotes a healthy lifestyle and the perseverance of striving toward a long-term goal. We are encouraging all students (kindergarten through 5th grade) to run or walk laps on the County Line field during their lunch recess. Students worked hard during the first two weeks of the marathon during the fall. Now they can continue toward their goal by participating in the spring portion of the marathon, May 13-17 & May 20-24.
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 accessible under the “Events” section at countylinePTA.org.
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. In the event of inclement weather, the marathon will be held on the blacktop or indoors.
