Del Lago is excited to bring back the Marathon Club for 2023! The club is focused on helping kids to appreciate physical activity and healthy nutritional choices. Our students will be meeting once a week as part of a specially tailored training program offered through the OC Marathon Foundation.


The activities are designed to have the kids get 25 miles of steps in over the course of 10 weeks. Kids can also have the option to participate in running a "Final Mile" (1-mile run) at the OC Marathon on May 6, 2023, at the OC Fairgrounds to round out a full 26 miles of activity. Kids are not required to run the "Final Mile" in the OC Marathon. The Marathon Club is open to everyone!

The Marathon Club begins on Wednesday, February 22. Kids need to check in by 7:15AM at the lunch tables.



Marathon Club is about movement and healthy choices. The kids will participate in curated physical activities before school and will be given healthy choice activities to do with their family at home (e.g., drink lots of water, help prepare healthy meals, etc.). The goal is to encourage the kids to choose to be active and make good decisions about what they eat.


Students in all grades are welcome, but we do ask that for our friends in Kindergarten and 1st grade, a parent stays to watch the group and support their child's involvement.

Get excited, parents! The Marathon Club is a fun way to build healthy habits with your children! Marathon Club Volunteers may be asked to help with set-up, check-in, taking photos, assisting with instruction of the kids during the activities, and providing positive feedback. We will also need race day volunteers to help coordinate the kids in getting ready for their race, during the race on the track, and in being returned to their parents.

The Marathon Club depends on volunteers to be effective and ensure that each student gets the most out of the program!
