About This Activity

In the Spring of 2014 we created the Forestville Elementary Half Marathon Club.  We are now completing our fourth half marathon.  Students in grades 4-6 run 1 mile twice per week, for a total of 13.1 miles.  They choose an actual half marathon course map and track their miles each time they run.  We have had an amazing amount of interest in the club, with nearly 70 participants each time.  At the completion of their final mile there is a “post-race party” which their families are invited to attend.  Students are presented with a certificate and bracelet.  This is a family-fun activity.  We are hoping to promote wellness in the community.
