| March 3, 2015
Sign up for the 2015 Mindful Mile Marathon!

Get moving: sign up for the 2015 Mindful Mile Marathon!

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 2015 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 18 and April 28. Walk/run or perform other cardio alone or with a group. The point is to commit time and energy to being deliberately active outside of everyday routines.

Kick-Off Events March 18

Registrations will be accepted through March, but plan to pre-register before the kickoff on Wednesday, March 18. Click here to register online.

Please direct any questions wellness@webster.edu.

Home Campus

At the Webster Groves campus, check-in at the kickoff will open in the University Center Presentation Room from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.

Participants who bring their signed waivers to the kick-off will receive a goodie bag! More information, including information for extended sites, can be found on the Webster Wellness website.

Registrants will have a chance to stretch out before taking an initial one-mile walk on campus.

Extended Sites

Participants at extended sites should contact their director to coordinate your local kick-off. Waivers should be sent to wellness@webster.edu.

Goodie bags will be sent to extended sites after registration closes.

Prizes

Each participant who makes the goal is awarded a certificate and t-shirt and is eligible for a grand prize.

While 26.2 miles is the goal for the Mindful Miles Marathon, participants can keep going after meeting the goal. We will give away a Fitbit to the top three overall miles and top three overall minutes for faculty and staff. Students will also be eligible for a Fitbit for the top mileage and top minutes. Through a random drawing three other participants who achieved their 26.2 miles will be awarded wellness-related prizes.

Prizes will be awarded at our final celebration on Fri. May 1, at noon, in the Emerson Library Conference Room. Extended site participants can join via phone by calling 1-888-337-0215, participant code 4171229#.
