ASF Runs for Education
ASF Runs for Education

On Sunday March 5, more than a thousand people braved the cool early morning air of Mexico City to stretch their legs for a cause.

ASF's annual Run for Education saw competitors of all ages walk, jog and race around the school, neighboring streets, and part of Chapultepec park. A new event, the three kilometer walk, kicked off the day's running at 7:00 a.m. Walkers were followed 20 minutes later by runners in the main event, completing a course of five or 10 kilometers. While runners continued to cross the finish line, the Upper School field hosted cycling classes, stretches, food stands, kids' races, and of course the prize giving ceremony.

The field of 1246 entrants – including 299 children – was made up of professionals, amateur runners, first timers, ASF students, parents and employees and many from outside the community. But all had one thing in common – their participation helped to raise money for ASF's Endowment Fund for Financial Aid, which helps deserving families who without it, would not be able to afford an ASF education.

All participants were winners and received a medal, however, a special congratulations to those top finishers in the five and 10 kilometer races:
