What: All Stevenson Middle School SRLA Runners are required to participate
in an 18 mile run on Sunday February 21, 2009.
When: All Stevenson Runners will meet in front of
Stevenson Middle School at 6:15 AM on Sunday
February 21, 2010. We should be returning between
1:30 and 2:00 PM.
What to bring: Bring a sack lunch and extra water for
after the event. We will not leave the park until after
1:00 PM. Bring clean clothes and sunscreen as we will
be outside for several hours.
Why: The purpose of this event is to complete a
critical long run before the Marathon. This run will
determine if students have the fitness necessary to complete the Marathon.
This run is mandatory for all SRLA runners. If student do not attend, they will
not be cleared to run the Marathon. Students who run slower than 16 minutes
per mile, will need to complete extra paperwork to participate in the marathon.
Student Runners who do not stay at or below the 16 minute-per-mile pace will
be pulled off the course at the end of the first 9-mile loop (about 2.5 hours
10:45AM) or at the 15-mile point on Wentworth St (about 4.25 hours or 12:15PM)
during the race. These students will have their LA Marathon bibs suspended
until conditions are met.
Transportation: Transportation to and from this event is
not provided by SRLA. Students will carpool to and from
the event with SRLA leaders including Ms. Schaller, Ms.
Rojas, Mr. Pfeffer or Mr. Segoviano. All students
planning to attend will need to return the attached
LAUSD permission slip and authorization form to Ms.
Schaller before we leave on Sunday.
