My First Marathon
Stay active all summer long.
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 are asked to 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 (click to download).
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.
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.)
