Do a l-o-o-o-n-g marathon

The Town of Danville is holding a progressive marathon for those who find covering 26.2 miles at one time a bit too challenging. The progressive marathon will allow individuals to complete the distance at their own pace between Jan. 1 and May 5. It's a non-competitive event and will not be timed or scored. Participants track their own progress.

My Own Marathon will culminate at the Spring Fest: A Safety and Wellness Community Event at the Danville Community Center and the participants will walk their final mile together and celebrate.

Marathoners can register individually or as a group with friends, co-workers or classmates. To register, call 314-3400 or visit www.ci.danville.ca.us and use class barcode 9638 for individuals. The cost is $8 for Danville residents and $10 for non-residents. After registering, go to the Community Center, 420 Front St., and pick up a goody bag with a pedometer, T-shirt and log book with fitness tips and a mileage chart for tracking progress.
