2022 OCE Family Marathon

 

Registration will open on AUGUST 12 for the 2022 OCE Family Marathon and will close Sept 9.

 

Dear Parent/ Guardian,

 

Please join us this year for a longtime favorite tradition, the Family Marathon! This is an annual event that encourages children to run/walk the distance of a full marathon, 26.2 miles, at a pace at home that is both fun and safe for their growing bodies.

 

Families of K-5 graders will run/walk a total of 25 miles at home together, tracking progress on the provided training log, and will also be asked to help their runners fill out the provided reflection sheet so they can see that even on days when it seemed hard or they didn’t feel like moving, that they could do it. The runners will then complete the last 1.2 miles of the marathon at the school with parents and community members cheering them on! You may begin tracking your miles as soon as you register!

 

All students who successfully complete the entire distance will receive a medal at the finish line ONLY if they have submitted their signed training log on the date due:

 

Tracks 2 & 4 - Training log due Nov. 2…………you will complete your marathon of 1.2 miles at the school on Nov. 9

 

Tracks 1 & 3 - Training log due Nov. 9………..you will complete your marathon of 1.2 miles at the school on Nov. 16

We encourage families to use the site: https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/create/ to plan and create routes as well as to determine mileage if a GPS watch is unavailable for tracking. Students will develop critical thinking skills as they map out training routes, explore route elevations, and think about proper pacing in relation to distance and hills. We also encourage you to share your runner’s progress with the school community by submitting any photos under the OCE Facebook Family Marathon thread or by sending it in to their teachers for it to be shared. It’s always fun to know you aren’t alone in your training journey!

 

The Family Marathon is FREE this year to ALL runners!  

🥇Please use this link to register in order to receive your medal upon the completion of your running log.
