The Family Marathon is an annual event that encourages children to run/walk a full 26.2 mile marathon with family members at a rate that is fun and safe for their growing bodies. The final 1.2 miles of the marathon distance will be run from the track behind the school as a whole school celebration. Parents and siblings are encouraged to join in. Our goal is to support family efforts to make regular exercise a part of their healthy lifestyles and to develop fitness.We will be posting important updates on the PE Blog/Marathon tab http://blogs.wcpss.net/ocepeblog/family-marathon. You can also find the Running Log and Registration Form on that site.
