During the month of May, Northside students were encouraged to focus on physical fitness by running and walking to participate in the first Northside Family Marathon. Students logged the miles they ran or walked at home in order to track their progress toward the 26.2 mile marathon goal. Many students ran and walked along with their families to work toward the goal.
On Friday, May 20, 2016, fifty-eight students who met the running goal, completed the family marathon by running the last 1.2 miles here on the school grounds. Participants made two full laps around the school grounds to accomplish the 1.2 mile goal and were rewarded at the finish line with a medal and other prizes.
Northside is grateful to Fleet Feet of Carrboro and i9 Sports of Chapel Hill for sponsoring this activity.
