Wildcat Marathoner's Fun-run

Wildcat Marathoner's Fun-run
Sunday, February 9, 2020 - 08:00

In the fall of 2019 the CRCPHP in collaboration with the UArizona Cooperative Extension and the Southern Arizona Road Runners organization kicked off the Wildcat Marathoners (WM) running and walking program in four Pima County elementary schools. The WM program encourages students to be physically active during their lunchtime recess by logging miles that reach a half marathon or marathon distance. There are over 550 students participating in this physical activity initiative, designed to promote healthy activity options at their respective schools. Participating WM students are invited to the one-mile fun- run on the University of Arizona campus Sunday, February 9, 2020 at 8:00 AM. These students from each of the four schools have the opportunity to receive a UArizona Red Superhero cape after they complete the last mile at the Wildcat Marathoner’s Fun-run and celebrate their accomplishment!
