El Maratón al Cole, the activity in the classrooms for future marathonians
El Maratón al Cole is a project that aims to boost children around the world race, focusing attention on the celebration of Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Marathon, organized by the SD Correcaminos and the city of Valencia. Throughout a week, monitors/animators will train the students for this event that will experience the essence of running and will put into practice what they have learned with a series designed to practice them in a fun activity, respecting day to day at school.
The activity is focused for the younger start enjoying the world of athletics. Many schools have wanted to join this initiative that also promotes sport among children from kindergarden through 6th grade (from 3-12 years). But these activities are not only in the sporting side. Young kids are taught history from Marathon to crafts, games, healthy lifestyle or diet.
To end this week of Marathon to Cole, future marathonians will visit Expo Deporte Valencia on Friday 13 throughout the morning. And as a culmination of all they will encourage the streets of Valencia, the City of Running, next Sunday November 15th with the celebration of Trinidad Alfonso Valencia Marathon.
