My First Marathon

My First Marathon

26.2 Miles…One Mile at a Time

My First Marathon is a fun running challenge for kids ages 5-12 that encourages kids to stay active all summer long.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Kids will run (or walk) 1 mile on their own with adult supervision 25 times over the summer and record their completed mileage on their log sheet.

Then on Race Day, they’ll pick up their bib and race shirt and run their final 1.2 miles with all of the other My First Marathon participants.

RACE DAY:

The final 1.2 miles will be run as a group on Saturday, October 7 on the Valley Line Trail.
