How many miles are in a marathon? The correct answer is 26.2 miles. As soon as the school year begins, students can “log” their weekly miles during their physical education classes; another way to “log” miles is by going for walks with parents/adults. As in the case of past year’s – the honesty system is used by participants. It is highly recommended for students to consult with their physical education teachers for advice on “logging” in miles for the McAllen Kids Marathon. The commitment to the McAllen Kids Marathon will be celebrated at the Let’s Move – McAllen Kids Marathon on Saturday, September 29th at 8:00 a.m. Event is scheduled at McAllen Veterans Memorial Stadium. See you there!
