IGNATIAN RUN by Ariel Laguilles
Ariel Laguilles will take on the never done challenge of running the Ignatian Way from Azpeitia to Manresa, and setting a record in the process.
But more than setting a record, Ariel and the team want to promote this beautiful and historical path, the same one St. Ignatius of Loyola embarked on in 1522. This pilgrimage led St. Ignatius to develop what is now known as the Spiritual Exercises, which serve as the framework for Ignatian Spirituality. Varsity Sports & Educational Tours will assist with fundraising, promotion and overall logistics of THE IGNATIAN RUN.
Ariel is a product of Jesuit education, having attended Gonzaga College High School and Boston College, and served as a Jesuit Volunteer. Ariel is now back in DC, working at Gonzaga as Chair of the Modern Language Dept. He is also an assistant coach for the cross country team.
