2016 Seniors Marathon Summer Long Program
You can walk or run a total of 26.2 miles, a full marathon distance, throughout the summer! Each walker/ runner will be at a different level — and that’s perfectly fine! The goal is to get in at least one to two miles each week so that by Sept. 30, you only have 1.2 miles to complete during the finale celebration. The Seniors Marathon can help you stay on track with your goal. It includes organized walking tours, combining exercise and fun. Held in various locations around the city throughout the summer, they will feature interesting facts about each unique location.
The Fort4Fitness Seniors Marathon is sponsored by Lutheran Health Network and is a program that is open to anyone 50 years or older.
Walk at Jefferson Pointe Shopping Center this summer for a chance to win a $250 gift card (see bottom of this page or the Seniors Marathon logbook for details).
