We have a Marathon Club at our school. Students come before and after school and jog or walk laps that add up to miles over the year. When they reach 26.2 mikes, they earn a shirt that has paw prints on the back. Then every time they reach 5 more miles, we add another paw print. At the end of the year, we recognize the Top Ten with the most miles.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have seen students improve in jogging stamina when taking the Pacer test.
