Now Nov. 16-20!

What Is It?

Jog-a-thon is the Phoebe Hearst PTO’s annual fundraising event for the arts. This year, the Jog-a-thon will also be supporting teachers to get the resources they need to enhance Distance Learning as well as improve the outdoor learning spaces at Phoebe Hearst for when the students return to campus. For more information on how the funds are used, please click here.

Each student will run or walk for 15 minutes in their neighborhood, a park, their driveway, a local track, or any place that is safe and convenient during the week of November 16-20. 

Let us know how far you ran by Nov. 20!

Submit this form after your jog to let us know how far you ran and we will announce the three students in each grade who ran the farthest.  You can trace your route on a mapping website, like this one, to find the distance.

Competitive 6th graders will have the opportunity to prove who is the fastest! In addition to running for 15 minutes, all 6th graders are invited to try to run their fastest mile. The three 6th graders with the fastest 1-mile run times will be awarded trophies (porch drop-off). Times and distances can be tracked using a stopwatch, various smartphone apps, fitbit, or whatever is available to you.  Please send an email to if you have any questions about the Jog-a-thon.
