They've been training every Thursday since January, running the halls of their school.
Katie Markun, a teacher at Robeson Elementary School started the running club.
"My love for running came from my dad, actually. My dad and I have been running together for 20 years. We'll actually be running the Illinois Marathon together the next day as our last run, my dad will be moving after that. So, it's our last run, so now next year I'll get to still enjoy my passion for running with the kids at Robeson," she says.
