Webster Wellness, Webster Staff Alliance, Tau Sigma Honor Society and Sodexo “Mindful” invite Webster University students, staff and faculty at all campus locations to be a part of the 2014 Mindful Miles Marathon.

Those who sign up for the Mindful Miles Marathon are committing to cover the distance of a marathon (26.2 miles) between March 17 and April 27. Walk/run or perform other cardio alone or with a group on the designated path at your campus location, or design another own path. The point is to commit time and energy to being deliberately active outside of everyday routines.

Kick-Off Event March 17

Registrations will be accepted through March, but plan to pre-register before the kickoff on Monday, March 17. Click here for more information.

At the Webster Groves campus, check-in at the kickoff will open in the Sunnen Lounge from 11 a.m. through 1 p.m. Registrants will have a chance to browse at information tables sponsored by Sodexo “Mindful,” Big River Running Co., Tau Sigma and others and stretch out before taking an initial one-mile walk on campus.

Participants at extended sites should contact their director to host a local kick-off.

Prizes for Creativity

We encourage registrants to have fun with this walk/run on March 17, as it is also St. Patrick’s Day! Wear green and lots of it, or make your own costume! Pictures will be taken at all participating campuses and there will be prizes for the most creative St. Patrick’s Day Mindful Miles Marathon costume.
