Lakeview Marathon

The 2019 Marathon will take place April 18-May 31 during lunch recess. 

Marathon Finishers

The Marathon is a traditional spring-time activity at Lakeview. On marathon days, kids can run laps around the field during lunch recess.  6 laps is one mile.  158 laps is a marathon!

The marathon is open and optional to all students. For each mile students complete they earn a plastic shoe bead and if they complete a whole 26.2 miles they earn a special bead. Students who complete more than one marathon receive additional recognition.

New for 2019: students will wear personalized marathon badges with safety lanyards for the Marathon! No more lap cards to hold onto (or lose)! To track laps, volunteers will scan students’ QR codes with their smart phones.

Volunteering & Daily Leads

As you can see Lakeview’s  recess schedule is more complex than in years past. For that reason, we are asking for more volunteers to sign up to be a “Daily Lead”. If you know you’ll have time to help several days during the 6-week Marathon and are able to be there from 11:10-12:30 (1 st shift) or from 12:30-1:45 (2nd shift), please sign up as a daily lead! There isn’t much to being a daily lead! Daily leads will help:

  • Get supplies from shed and set up cones around the field (1st shift, arriving at 11:10)
  • Take photos of finishers and upload (or email) at end of day
  • Answer questions from new volunteers
  • Return supplies and cones to shed (2nd shift, ending at 1:45)

We need 2 Leads for each of the 30 Marathon days, so please sign up if you can!
You can select your choice of days & times, We’ll provide more details and instructions to all Daily Leads before the Marathon begins. Sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050844aaa628a46-marathon
If you would like more information or have any questions, please email us lakptsamarathon@gmail.com.

We need additional volunteers to scan badges and cheer on the students as they run laps during the lunch recesses. Watch for a scanner volunteer signup coning soon. The kiddos love to see parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and other important adults in their life.  By volunteering a short amount of time from your day, you will help make the marathon a success and assist the students in reaching the goal of 26.2 miles. NOTE: All volunteers must be LWSD approved and sign in at the front office before heading down to the field.

If you have any questions or would like to help, please email lakptsamarathon@gmail.com.
