What is this? It’s simple – by signing up, you commit to the distance of a marathon (26.2 miles) from March 18th-April 28th. Participants can walk/run or perform other cardio by themselves or with a group.The point is to commit time and energy to being deliberately active outside of their everyday routine.
Who can participate? This is open to ALL students, staff and faculty at all campus locations.
How much does this cost? IT IS FREE….EXCEPT FOR YOUR TIME AND ENERGY! Plus you will get some goodies just for participating.
When do I start? We’ll kick-off on Wednesday, March 18. At the Webster Groves campus, check-in will take place in the University Center Presentation Room from 11:30am to 1pm. Please bring your signed waiver to the kick-off and you’ll get a goodie bag. Extended sites – contact your director to coordinate for your local kick-off and send your waivers to firstname.lastname@example.org!
How Do I register? Online registration is available here Click here. Registration will be accepted through march, but plan to pre-register before our kick off on Wed.,March 18.
How do I log my miles? Log both the number of miles and the amount of time you exercise in any format you’d like. Note that the minutes are counted please count mileage and number of minutes you are active, count these when you are deliberately active for 20 minutes or longer at a time. On April 28th, we will ask for the total number of miles and total number of minutes you were active during the program. You will report this information in a simple online form that will be sent to you by the email you provide on your registration form.
Are there any incentives? Yes! While 26.2 miles is our goal, you don’t need to stop there! Each participant who makes the goal is awarded a certificate and t-shirt. We will also give away a Fitbit to the top 3 overall miles and top 3 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. Please send your final miles to email@example.com no later than Tuesday, April 28th 2015 Prizes will be awarded at our final celebration on May 1st at 12:00 pm in the Emerson Library conference room or via phone by calling 1-888-337-0215, participant code 4171229#.Questions?
