Welcome to our group!

Our Goal: To create a sustainable fitness opportunity for Lawrence area elementary students through development of a kids' marathon program that meets these criteria:
- Promotes lifelong wellness
- Provides students a sense of accomplishment, and
- Creates a fun, non-competitive atmosphere for all elementary students who want to participate.
What? A kids fitness program where students complete a marathon distance of 26.2 miles in one-mile increments during the school year.
Really? Yes, there is support available to get started, sponsored by Hy-Vee Stores.
Who? All Lawrence elementary school students, K-6th.
Where? On a pre-marked, one-mile, monitored course on or near your school grounds.
When? A designated time, before or after school, meeting preferably twice a week.
How? With a Marathon-in-a-Box start up kit!
Why? At a time when kids are less physically active, this will get kids outside and inspire them to get moving!
