Maniacs Marathon registration ends 3/27

3/19/2023 12:49 am

Maniacs Marathon is returning to MPE. This is a fun way for your family to get moving and having some fun! Your child will walk, run, skip, or hop 25.1 miles (no bikes). For every completed mile, you will put a bead on your necklace. There will be a special bead for the 13 mile mark and the 26.1 mile mark. This will be a virtual race except for the last mile. The virtual race will end on Wednesday, April 26th. We will have the children finish the final 1.1 mile at school on Thursday, April 27th at 10:15am

Register for free through your PTA account by 3/27/23 with an option to purchase a Mills Park Maniacs t-shirt ($8 per shirt). There are options for you to buy a shirt for your child and other family members. Registration includes each child’s beads. You can pay on-line through the PTA website. Registration is open now through March 27th. Once registration has closed, beads and necklaces will be sent home. The Maniac t-shirts will be delivered in April for the children to wear them at school on April 27th when they do their last mile. Download your log here.

This is going to be a fun, family event and  we cannot wait to have all of our Panthers participate! Lace up those shoes, grab some water, and get ready to move!


The PTA thanks Mrs. Huffman and Ms. Cogswell for bringing the Maniacs Marathon back to MPE this year.
