Haigh Elementary School

Martian Marathon – Team Haigh!!

The Haigh Owls are participating in the Martian Marathon this year!  If you would like to participate in this fun and exciting running event you can sign up by following the registration steps below for the running event! 

How it Works: 

Register online and log 25 miles and then head to Dearborn to finish the last 1.2!  After the kids complete the Kids’ Martian Marathon in Dearborn they are awarded the same medal that the adult marathoners are receiving that day! 

You run 25 miles between now and April 13th!  On April 13th, you line up in front of thousands of people who will see you run the last 1.2 miles of your marathon adventure! Start logging your miles today and we will see you on April 13th!! 

When logging your miles you can use the attached Log Sheet to stay on track!  A great way to log your miles is to run the track at recess!  8 laps on the track at Haigh = 1 mile!

When is the race? Saturday, April 13th in Dearborn.  There is a map of the race under the “info” tab on the Martian Marathon homepage. https://www.martianraces.com/info/course-map
