Olympic athlete and marathon runner Ryan Hall will visit Ranchwood Elementary in Yukon on Friday to talk about living a healthy lifestyle to combat childhood obesity.

Hall will speak to kindergarten through third-grade students participating in “Run with US,” a free, research-based track and field game for children that turns passive gaming into a physically interactive experience.

Hall won the marathon at the 2008 Olympic Trials and placed 10th in the Olympic marathon in Beijing.
