More Kids, More Miles

Physical Activity Participation
Our Running Club takes place during the school day, meaning more students have the opportunity to participate. These extra students are getting more miles and the number participating in the Marathon Kids program has increased. The students like seeing their total miles increase and knowing that they have completed multiple marathons. They are having fun and starting to developing habits to use throughout their lives.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students that did not like to run are now asking to run. They are happy when they get to put extra miles in to help them reach their marathon goals. I am happy this is being a positive influence on getting the kids active in something that they can do throughout their lifetime.
