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.)
Participants will race the final 1.2 miles on Saturday, October 6 at 9 a.m. on Lincolnwood’s Valley Line Trail.
Lincolnwood Valley Line Trail, between Pratt and Touhy Ave. Race will begin at Pratt Ave.
