Marathon Kids In Action at Bowie Elementary

We have 100 students in our Marathon Kids program here at Bowie Elementary. Students run during Physical Education class, recess and in our after-school running club. On Saturday mornings, our students run in 1 and 3-mile race events with our local school sponsor Luke's Locker. The staff at Bowie participate in our race events and also our families. The Marathon Kids program has increased our students' running abilities.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

The Marathon Kids program is sustainable as we have participated in this program for the past 6 years. Running is fun and provides great physical activity for our students.
