$143,680.84 Raised!

We surpassed our goal of $130,000!


Thank You Sponsors!

Our Goal

The marathon is not only a great day filled with outdoor activity and community building, we also use this event to close the funding gap between our school and other Stillwater public schools. St. Croix Prep does not receive any of the local tax levy funds that the local district receives. This ‘gap’ amounts to over $2.5 million per year. We must work together to close this funding gap for our students.

Our goal for the marathon is $130,000.

Funds raised will support competitive compensation for our talented and dedicated teachers this school year. Funds will also go towards student technology, including 720 Chromebooks.

This will be our 11th St. Croix Prep Marathon

We will kick off our 2023 Marathon run with a ribbon cutting ceremony of Discovery Trail (funds to build Discovery Trail were raised from the 2022 Marathon).
Over the years, this event has raised over $911,000 Past purchases have included/raised funds for:
