Sign up for the 2015 Mindful Mile Marathon!

The Mindful Mile Marathon sponsored by Webster Wellness, Webster Staff Alliance, Gorlok Fit Club and Mindful by Sodexo opened successfully with 125 people attending the kickoff in the University Center on Wednesday, March 18.

You can still join the current 213 (and growing) students, faculty and staff who are already participating with a pledge to move 26.2 miles (or more!) in the next five weeks. 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.

If you are still interested in participating, you can sign up through the end of March. Participants at extended sites should contact their director to coordinate your local kick-off. Waivers should be sent to wellness@webster.edu.


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#.
