Preston Meadow Park Pavilion 

The Daffron 2nd through 5th Grade students are participating in four marathons this year. If you want to win marathon prizes, then here is a great way to get your marathon miles in with the Daffron coaches. This is a choice, and it is a great way to get in your miles.

  • Students should check in with the coach and place their backpacks on the tables in the pavilion. At 7:30, the students will walk to the building with the coach.
  • If there is no coach or the weather is bad, there will be no running. Please go to the gym.
