WHAT IS MARATHON HIGH?
Founded in February 2011, Marathon High is a regional nonprofit program that challenges teens to train for a 13.1 mile half-marathon in order to develop positive futures. By training week after week for four months, this after-school program allows high school students to develop athletic skills, social skills, self-respect, self-esteem, courage, strength, confidence, healthy lifestyles and a positive direction.
Marathon High is a free program that is proudly partnered with the Galloway Training Program and the 26.2 with Donna, and we serve teens of all backgrounds and abilities in grades 9-12. The program is also non-competitive — meaning speed does not matter — so we reach teens who have never considered themselves an athlete and are not currently involved in athletics. Marathon High helps students overcome difficulties and obstacles in their lives and allows them to realize that anything is possible if they work hard and are committed.
