            Lace up those running shoes, it is Marathon Time.  The goal of the Wellness Committee is to promote healthy lifestyles for students and staff and fitness for life.  The goal of the WES Eagle Marathon is to encourage students to challenge themselves to complete a goal by walking or running a mile once a day during the 8-week program until they achieve a full marathon distance of 26.2 miles.  All mileage is tracked when students attend.

          To kick the program off the Wellness Committee invited Supergirl to WES to help kickoff the marathon on August 25. When students complete a full marathon they will have their name posted on the gym wall and the participants will complete the last GRAND FINALE mile together in October.

          The course start, finish & check-in will be behind the Elementary School in the back parking lot near the sand pit (next to Ash St.).  Five (5) laps around the perimeter of the parking lot is 1.1 miles.  Only students in 4th & 5th grades may choose to run 2 laps around the cross country course West of the Elementary School & bordering First Street unless they are accompanied by an adult.  Mile markers will be given to students to help them count laps. The courses will be staffed by Wellness Committee members & identifiable staff.  Safety is the biggest concern & volunteers will be spaced along the routes so walkers/runners can be seen the entire length of the run.

          Each week the Wellness Committee has invited a special group attend.  They also encourage volunteers on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday mornings.   There is NO running/walking on Wednesdays.  If you are able to help out please call Cherry Chrisjohn at 785-883-2996 Ext. 3126 or cchrisjohn@usd289.net.
