On May 8-9, 2020, our crazy group of Peabody School parents and supporters are teaming up to run the Ragnar Cape Relay for the fourth time. Over the past few years, our runners, volunteers, and donors raised over $22,000 for school enrichment activities! This year we’ve decided that running the 190-mile course is not enough of a challenge. We want to see if we can gather two teams together to take this on. Two teams of 12 runners, 24 together, all running to support the Peabody School. If you’ve ever heard about a Ragnar relay and were interested in running or driving or you just want to see what all the hype is all about OR you really, really, really would like to spend two days in a van with fellow parents, now is your chance to follow your dreams. Please reach out to Jenn McManus-Goode at jennmcmanus@yahoo.com if you would be interested in participating or have questions. We are hoping to make a decision about whether or not to fund the second 12-person team by November 13 and to secure firm commitments by end of November.

Ragnar Race is Coming Up!

In less than a month, a group of 12 Peabody supporters with 2 van drivers are running to raise money for more enrichment programs at Peabody. The Ragnar Relay is a 192-mile relay that runs through the night starting in Hull, zig-zags all over the Cape, and then ends at Smuggler’s Beach in South Yarmouth.The team runs three legs each with everyone running anywhere from a half-marathon to a marathon distance. This year’s team includes first grade teacher extraordinaire, Ms. Nerich, and parents, tios, tias and friends of Peabody students from JK through middle school.

Stay tuned for some fun background info on all of the runners and drivers who are participating this year.

Ragnar Race!

In approximately 40 days, the Friends of Peabody Pumas will be embarking on their third Ragnar relay race. Each Puma will run three legs of this 200-mile relay with each runner running anywhere from a half-marathon to a marathon distance through the night.  The team is rallying to try to raise $7500 to fund additional FoP programs like the recent Alton Jones field trip.  A donation of any amount helps support that goal.
