2011 WELS Kids Marathon

It is time for the 2011 WELS Kids Marathon. We are beginning our 3rd year and looking to have a better than ever event.

The WELS Kids Marathon will again consist of kids grades K through 8 running or walking 26.2 miles while reading either 26 books or reading for 26 hours over the summer. Healthy minds and healthy bodies are our goal! We will once again all join together to run the final mile together where you will cross the finish line of your marathon receiving a finishers medal.

In the next few days, we will be putting the entry form on line you to download. If your school is participating, please check for who your representative is and sign up that way. If your school is not participating and you still want to enter, please download the entry form and send it to the address listed on the form.

We have some new schools participating this year and welcome any other school that would like to join. This year's final event will be held again at Wisconsin Lutheran College's Raabe Stadium. The final event will be held on Saturday, August 27th but this year, we will be starting at 7:00PM.
