thanks Rachel and Olive!

Rachel Simmonds and Olive Lehmen participated in the Kids MaraFun where they completed a marathon over several weeks.

“The McDonald’s Vancouver Kids MaraFun has been designed so that the kids will actually run the majority of the race in the six weeks prior to race day. They begin with 0.8K (.5 mi) per day, then increase to 2.4K (1.5 mi) per day by week six. The final km (mi) of the MaraFun will be run on the actual marathon course on race day. Upon crossing the finish line each participant will receive a Full MaraFun Finishers Medal and T-shirt. Certificates will be mailed. MaraFun training is done through the honor system under the guidance of a parent, teacher or coach.”

Rachel and Olive completed their last kilometer at the Vancouver Marathon on May 4th and wore their See-Them-Run singlets!
