About This Activity

In the Spring of 2014 we created the Forestville Elementary Half Marathon Club.  Students in grades 3-6 ran 1 mile twice per week, for a total of 13.1 miles.  They chose an actual half marathon course map and tracked their miles each time they ran.  We had an amazing amount of interest in the club, with nearly 70 participants.  At the completion of their final mile there was a “post-race party” which their families were invited to attend.  Students were presented with a certificate and bracelet.  We would like to raise enough money through this fun run/walk to pay for supplies, provide each student with a Half Marathon Club t-shirt and to fund the “post-race party”.

Please note that this is a "Fun Run" and not a timed event.
