The Kahoks on the Go are preparing for the grand marathon at St.Louis this April. Kahoks on the GO! is a fun run club at Collinsville High School to help students meet the personal goal of running a half-marathon during the GO! 

The first practice was held at the beginning of December. Kahoks on the GO! is open to any Collinsville High School student and all are invited to participate. Kahoks on the GO! is a club at CHS where teachers and students train together for the GO! St. Louis Half Marathon! 

Mr. Gottschalk and Ms.Furlow are the ones who organized this year’s club. They help students meet their goal! Mondays and Tuesdays are the days to stay after school and do at least two miles or more to prepare for the marathon. More than 10 people are in this club and trying really hard to do their very best at the marathon. 

“I felt very nervous at first, but eventually I got the hang of it and now it’s my daily thing now,”said junior Yoselin Nova, a runner who is in the club!
