Henrico, VA – Dr. Casey Hitchcock, Head of School at Lynnhaven School, conquered the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon in Buena Vista, FL on November 5th and the Richmond Marathon here in Richmond, VA on November 11th. With two races, in two states, in just one week.
The Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon, known for its magical course through the Walt Disney World Resort, served as a prelude to Dr. Hitchcock's ambitious week. Following this race, she continued her quest by tackling the Richmond Marathon, a challenging and iconic event held annually in the heart of Virginia. This year's race highlighted just why it is dubbed America's Friendliest Marathon, with perfect weather and cheering spectators lining the course.
Dr. Hitchcock's achievement demonstrates her commitment to fostering a culture of holistic well-being within the Lynnhaven School community, leading by example through hard work, grit, and endurance. "I want everyone to know that when they decide to do something that seems impossible and they dedicate the time to make it happen, it can!" Dr. Hitchcock shared. She started training in June with the Sports Backers Marathon Training Team where she also volunteers. "Battling injury and illness this season made it more challenging than most, but I was able to pull off a big personal best and I'm looking forward to taking a little break before the next adventure," she stated.
"I don't know how she does it," said a Lynnhaven parent. Lynnhaven School also had parents and students represented in the Richmond Marathon as runners and volunteers along the course. As a leader in education and an advocate for personal development, Dr. Hitchcock's success resonates with students, parents, and faculty members alike.
You will see Dr. Hitchcock on the course alongside faculty and staff for the Tacky Light Run and the new River City Half Marathon in March. For further information or to arrange an interview, please contact Alyson LeMaster, Dean of Enrollment & Innovation at 804-750-2300.
