Participating Waldorf Schools

The Waldorf 100 “Marathon Around the World” project was chosen because “sport inspires people while also conveying the basic idea of Waldorf 100: to connect the world.” All Waldorf students will enjoy a reduced entry fee and all area Waldorf Schools are invited to sign on as “participating schools.” Track and cross country teams will be offered team rates, and most importantly, we will be united through this sporting event marking the 100th Anniversary of Waldorf Education!
