Our mission is to promote balanced, healthy lifestyles to young adults and show them that they can achieve anything they put their heart into, all by simply running.
Marathon High is a free, 5-month after school training program designed to give students who would not normally participate in standard interscholastic sports a chance to complete the Austin Marathon. The program consists of three training days per week including two after-school runs and one Saturday run. Students participating in the program get the incredible opportunity to be coached by Olympic-level runners that are part of adidas/RogueAC.
Throughout the program the students learn how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. For example, students get to experience sustainable, organic agriculture through field trips to local farms and then learn the ease of preparing healthy meals at local kitchens. All in all, students get the opportunity to explore their own being and experience their community in a way that they never have before at zero cost to them. With Marathon High, they have so much to gain and nothing to lose.
Although the program is in it's infancy, your input is appreciated. We would love to get your thoughts and ideas as well as provide you additional information.
