My First Marathon

My First Marathon

26.2 Miles…One Mile at a Time

RACE DAY: SAT., OCT. 6 at 9 AM
LOCATION: MEET AT THE VALLEY LINE TRAIL ENTRANCE AT PRATT AVE.

My First Marathon is a fun running challenge for kids ages 5-12 that encourages kids to stay active and gives them the thrill of a race. To prepare, kids should run or walk 25 miles on their own, accompanied by an adult. (Miles accumulated over the summer can count toward the goal & if miles are not met, kids can continue to run throughout the fall to complete them, post-race. Completed miles can be tracked on a log sheet, which does not need to be turned in.)

Then, on October 6 at 9 am, we’ll meet at the Valley Line Trail and the kids will race the final 1.2 miles along the Valley Line Trail together, and then be awarded a My First Marathon finisher medal and feel the thrill of a race!

RACE DAY:

Participants will race the final 1.2 miles on Saturday, October 6 at 9 a.m. on Lincolnwood’s Valley Line Trail.

RACE LOCATION:

Lincolnwood Valley Line Trail, between Pratt and Touhy Ave. Race will begin at Pratt Ave.
