School Marathon Goes National

A big congratulations to Lousie Comfort and her partner Dana Kossow for taking their idea and running with it… poor pun intended… Through the School Marathon program, children begin running an average of one mile a day during a six-week period, usually during the fall semester. At completion, each child will have run 26.2 miles.

“Through their website, the women hope to give elementary school principals, administrators and teachers a template for creating their own School Marathon programs. While following a systemized program, each marathon also will be designed to fit the specific needs of a school.”  more
