On Sunday March 13, Lincoln School hosted its first ever Aquathon. The event was put together to raise funds for the Lincoln School Athletics Department and to donate some of these funds towards the earthquake recovery efforts in Nepal. The Aquathon consisted of a 1km swim and a 5km run, and most of our participants accomplished the course with flying colors.
The event was for the participants to enjoy their time and help out the community while doing so. It was not a race and swimmers and runners could choose to do one or both of the disciplines. Also, they did not have to complete all the swimming and running laps, but whatever the felt comfortable with. The Lincoln School students and parents jumped into our pristine pool to begin the event and swam up to 40 laps, followed by 10, 500 meter laps of the school, which had runners zooming through the hallways, across rooftops and gyms and the back down to the field.
All in all, the event was a huge success and great fun! The Lincoln School Athletics Director, Luke Davis said, “I was so happy to over 50 participants with smiles on their faces while completing the gruelling course. Thanks to everyone who came out to participate or cheer on the Aquathletes, and contribute to this worthy cause.” We hope that this is the first of many such events.
