Fifty students and staff from Bellefontaine High School and Bellefontaine Middle School volunteered at the Columbus Marathon on Sunday.

Members of the BHS National Honor Society, BHS swim team, BHS Envirothon team, and BMS cross country team helped pass out snacks to runners as they crossed the finish line.

BCS students and staff also helped with trash collection and removal.

Envirothon led an effort to collect recyclable cardboard from the event to reduce waste.

Envirothon students were also invited to hold the finish line tape for the men’s, women’s, and wheelchair division winners.

BHS Envirothon President Maggie Howard was interviewed by Austin Martin for the NBC 4 morning news about the recycling initiative. The groups involved were each rewarded with a generous grant from Nationwide Insurance.

There were 2,388 runners in the full marathon, including 3 Bellefontaine residents.

There were 6,270 runners in the half marathon, including 8 from Bellefontaine.

Bellefontaine City Schools has sent volunteers to the Columbus Marathon since 2013.
