Macdonough teachers and students ran the streets of Hartford on Saturday, October 10th at the ING Hartford Marathon. Nearly twenty participants from Macdonough School were among the more than 7,000 athletes participating in the race.
Macdonough students and teachers took part as a relay team with each person running legs ranging from one mile to six miles. Added together, the participants from Macdonough School ran a total of more than eighty miles!
Special thanks to members of the Wesleyan University Women's Ice Hockey team for helping to escort our runners to and from the mile markers.
Special recognition to Mr. Nelson and Miss Claffey for running the entire 13.1 mile course!
