2016 MINDFUL MILE MARATHON!!!

Webster Wellness, Webster Staff Alliance, Gorlok Fitness Club and Mindful by Sodexo invites you to be a part of the:

2016 MINDFUL MILES MARATHON!

REGISTER NOW AT: http://bit.ly/1VhbPwU

What is this? By signing up you commit to the distance of a marathon (26.2 miles) from March 16–April 27. You can walk, run or perform other cardio by yourself or with a group. The point is to commit time and energy to being deliberately active outside of your everyday routine.

Who can participate?  This is open to ALL students, staff and faculty at all campus locations.

How much did 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 with our first mile together on Wed., March 16 at the Webster Groves campus. Check-in will take place in the Sunnen Lounge from 11:30 a.m.–1:00 p.m. Please bring your signed waiver to the kick-off and you’ll get a goodie bag.

How do I track my progress? Log 1) the number of miles and 2) the number of minutes, and 3) the method you used to exercise in any format you’d like. Note that the miles and minutes are counted when you are deliberately active (increased heart rate) for 20 minutes or longer at a time. We’ll send your registration e-mail a link to an online form for you to report your totals on April 27th.

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 other Mindful Mile goodies. Participants who achieved their 26.2 miles will be entered into prize drawings. Nine prize drawings will be open to all participants and an additional two drawings will be specifically for students only. Opportunities will be provided to increase your chances to win a prize throughout the marathon. Look for weekly emails to keep you motivated and on track!

Prizes will be awarded at our final celebration on Fri. April 29, at noon, in the Emerson Library Conference Room or you can join via phone by calling 1-888-337-0215, participant code 4171229#. Light refreshments will be served.

Special Note for Extended Sites:  Contact your director to coordinate your local kick-off and send your waivers to wellness@webster.edu! Goodie bags will be sent to extended sites after registration closes.
