BFA Fairfax Runners Beat The Heat at the 2016 Vermont City Marathon Weekend

Bill Bowerman, co-founder of Nike, once said “The real purpose of running isn’t to win a race, it’s to test the limits of the human heart.”

BFAmarathon1On May 28 and 29, the infallible hearts of 50-plus members of the BFA Fairfax community were on full display during the annual Vermont City Marathon Weekend.  On days where temperatures and humidity levels were intimidating to even the most seasoned runners, BFA Fairfax students, faculty, staff, and family members braved the conditions and met or exceeded goals that were established in training many weeks and months earlier.

Whether participating in the youth races, team relay, or full marathon, the success of the weekend was a testament to the vibrant running community here at BFA Fairfax. In addition to our multiple runners, many other school community members were in attendance as race volunteers, supporters, or simply taking in the energy of the popular annual event.

We are extremely proud of our student, faculty, staff, and family runners here at BFA Fairfax.  They are true example of the interests and camaraderie of members of our school community that extend far beyond the walls of our classrooms.  We all can tap into their inspiration and determination, and look forward to continued success in future Vermont City Marathon weekends.
