Cadets Preparing for the Philadelphia Marathon
The Army West Point Marathon team conducted an 18-mile aerobic run in Sleepy Hollow, NY in preparation for the upcoming Philadelphia Marathon on November 24, with the goal of earning a qualifying time for the Boston Marathon.
The long runs, those over 15 miles, are critical to the team’s success racing the marathon distance. Nine dedicated team members braved the rain and low temperatures to test their limits. Their hard work will reap benefits as the distances continue to increase.
