LAF Mini Marathon - October 18

LAF Mini Marathon is just around the corner! This is a great opportunity for students entering and returning to Lafayette to get involved and meet new friends. Mini Marathon is a non-competitive, untimed 1.6-mile walk/jog/run. This event is open to all students regardless of athletic ability. The objectives of Mini Marathon are to set goals, follow through with a commitment, develop school spirit, and to have FUN!

There are three scheduled practices that take place after school. Practice dates are September 20, 27, and October 11. Practice is run by LAF teacher Katie Williams and PTO volunteers. Practice begins immediately after school and ends at 4:15 pm.

All participants will receive a tee-shirt and a medal for participating in the race on October 18th. (Rain Date, October 19th). To register please login to chatham community pass and register under Chatham PTO- LAF. Make sure you update your child teacher to the correct one for this school year. Registration closes on Friday September 9th.

Please consider volunteering for a practice or Race Day. It’s a great way to get involved.

Please follow up with the committee heads if you have any questions.
