In light of the continuing concern over the number of COVID-19 cases reported by the Mobile County Health Department, the Mobile Marathon Race Committee has decided to postpone the Servis1st Bank Mobile Marathon races until January 8, 2023.
However, we will be launching the "26.2 in My Shoes" fundraising, virtual event soon. Twenty-six (26) participants (individuals or groups) will volunteer to make and submit videos of themselves running/walking a mile of the marathon course. Each of the 26 will be matched with a community member of L'Arche Mobile. The community member's individual story will be included in the video. One video per day will be posted online during the 26 days leading up to January 9, 2022.
On January 9, 2022, to commemorate our usual race day, we will be sharing music by local artists and vignettes of some of the L'Arche community members on our social media. The entire "26.2 in My Shoes" series, including the "completion" episode, will be available for viewing on January 9.
More information on these virtual events will be posted soon so check back for further updates.
L'Arche thanks you for your support of the Mobile Marathon and the local L'Arche community.
