Programs

SRLA has a unique and innovative adult-supervised 26-week marathon-training program. While running is the core of the program, the 3,200 participating students learn discipline, perseverance, and a healthy life style. Annually, they not only complete a 26.2-mile marathon, but they also develop the habit of regular exercise; they learn to eat and drink nutritiously; their health improves; their self-confidence increases; and they stay in school and graduate from high school.
