My First Marathon

26.2 Miles…One Mile at a Time

RACE DAY: SAT., OCT. 7 at 9 AM
LOCATION: MEET AT FLOWERS PARK*(4520 W. Pratt Ave.)

*From Flowers Park, we’ll walk over to the Valley Line Trail, which will be closed for the race

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 7 at 9 am, we’ll meet in Flowers Park, 4520 W. Pratt Ave. and then the kids will run 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:

The final 1.2 miles will be run as a group on Saturday, October 7 at 9 a.m. on Lincolnwood’s Valley Line Trail.

Valley Line Trail (we will meet in Flowers Park, 4520 W. Pratt Ave.)
