WES EAGLE MARATHON 2014

All elementary students participated in the final run/walk of the 2014 Eagle Marathon on Friday October 17, 2014.  Over 3,000 miles were ran or walked by the elementary students and staff.

2ND ANNUAL WES MARATHON

         The runners and walkers during this year’s WES Marathon experienced wind and rain, fog and heat.  The kick-off began on August 25th and the extreme heat and humidity prevented the students and staff from running a complete mile!  Despite the varying weather conditions, 44 students completed the goal of running a full marathon (26.2 miles) in one-mile increments.  There were on average 100 students running or walking each morning accompanied by moms and dads, grandparents, high school athletes and coaches, community members, and school board members.  Student runners received a “toe token” for every 5 miles they ran or walked and those that completed the marathon received a special “26.2” token to add to their chain as well as a certificate to be proud of!  “School Marathon participants experience improved physical condition, the pride of completing a lofty goal, and possess increased mental focus and concentration throughout their school day.   The energetic, non-competitive, and highly social group dynamic associated with School Marathon leaves children with a positive exercise experience, which lays the groundwork for an active lifestyle.”(BORROWED FROM SCHOOLMARATHON.ORG)  There were 23 volunteers that helped supervise and encourage the runners throughout the weeks.  They, too, endured the weather and early morning hours.  The Wellness Committee would like to thank the teachers and staff for their support during the 8 weeks of the marathon.  Food Service Director, Peggy Inglehart, is looking for new members to add to the Wellness Committee for next year so that this program can continue and expand.  If you would be interested in volunteering your time to serve on the Wellness Committee, please contact Mrs. Inglehart at 785-883-2057 ext. 3116. 

These students completed the 26.2 mile marathon.
