Jog-A-Thon 2022

Our jog-a-thon is this Friday, Oct 21! 

Below is the race day schedule for each grade — families are welcome to attend the event and cheer on the kids!

Rich Hanna with Capitol Road Race Management will be setting up the famous course and emceeing the event. We’re lucky to have this professional touch at our jog-a-thon — Rich does it as a favor as his kids are Phoebe alum! 

Each grade will run for 15-minutes. The top boy and girl runners will receive medals. 

We will have snacks for the kids after they run, and the Meltdown ice cream truck will be on campus handing out popsicles post-run, too. 

All jog-a-thon swag  — the shirts, socks, sweatshirts, etc. they earned from fundraising — will be distributed by Wednesday, Oct 19 so the kids can wear their jog-a-thon gear on that Friday. 

It’s going to be a ton of fun! Thanks for all of your support making this a successful jog-a-thon!

THE DAY OF THE JOG-A-THON

The Jog-a-thon will be held during the school day on Friday, October 21. Each grade will be allotted 15 minutes to run as many laps as they can. Each lap is approximately 1/5 of a mile. Steve Buzzard of Buzzard Ball is graciously emceeing the Jog-a-thon this year! The event is a school wide favorite. The 6th graders will get to test their speed as we finish the day with the 6th Grade Fastest Lap event. This one lap race is always a crowd pleaser complete with
trophies.

If you have any questions about the Jog-a-thon, please reach out to Paige Brokaw and Caitlin Beckett at phjogathon@gmail.com.
