SVE Mini Marathon

Physical Activity Participation
SVE Mini Marathon

Our school hosted the annual SVE Mini Marathon for all 4th and 5th graders in our entire school district! Students run, jog, walk a 3.2 mile country course with official marathon bibs and timing at the finish line. The marathon was a huge success and included running club training for many of our students months ahead of the big day, October 31, 2016.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The SVE mini marathon is organized and facilitated by a district team of educators and community members representing all 5 of our district elementary schools. Students work ahead of time by preparing for the run either as a class or through an after school running club. Community businesses donate funds to purchase official marathon T-shirts for every 4th and 5th grade student. Together, students and adults experience a real marathon promoting physical fitness.
