Anyone can run 26.2 miles over the Boston Marathon course. But only Wellesley College seniors get to scramble the 1/8 of a mile hoop rolling course at the school each year.
Wellesley’s College’s 116th annual hoop rolling race takes place Saturday April 30 at 9AM (follow the students in graduation gowns armed with wooden hoops and sticks).
The winner gets dunked in Lake Waban and goes on to untold success in life. Definitely worth a look for a fun slice of life at the school (A video from 2008’s event).
