Physical Activity Participation

Our school is  off and running to finish 4 marathons before the end of the school year. Students are trying to reach their first 26.2 miles. Students in grades 2nd -5th are participating in the Marathon Kids program. Our school is using the Stride Track software program to keep track of their miles. Students can always see their progress.

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

The challenge will continue until the end of the school year. The students know they have the whole year to complete the 4 marathons. Students always know how many miles they have run and if they are close to finishing the marathon.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are trying to finish their marathons by running during recess. Later on, their parents will be invited to come out and run with their children. The students are really excited with the challenge presented to them.
