The PE department facilitates a recess-based marathon program.  This is an optional marathon that students can choose to run gradually during their own time at recess.  Students track their progress using "lap cards" that they turn in whenever they run laps (up to 3 laps per recess).  Each card completed is the approximate equivalent of 2 miles run toward their marathon, so when students complete their 13th card they have completed a marathon.  As a fun motivator, students collect "mini feet" (one foot per card) on a chain bracelet as they work toward their marathon.  When they finish their first marathon, they receive a tie-dye t-shirt and a patch for each subsequent marathon.  Finally, marathoners celebrate together at an end-of-year ice cream party with all of the fixings.
