Setauket Elementary School third through sixth grade students ran hundreds of miles this fall as part of their participation in the school’s running club.

Seventy-two students took part in the initiative and met from October through December on Thursdays after school to run for 60 minutes each session. Recording their progress along the way, many students ran three or more miles each session, and each club member ran enough miles to cumulatively count as a full marathon. As such, each was awarded a medal from the New York Road Runners.
