Kids who have accumulated 25.2 miles for a marathon or 12.1 miles for a half marathon will run a one mile fun run at the National Infantry Museum to complete the required 26.2 miles for a marathon or a 13.1 miles for a half marathon distance race.
Kids Mileage Log Spreadsheet
Mileage should be tracked using the mileage log sheet that can be downloaded here – 2017 Kids Marathon Log Sheet. After each runner has logged either 25.2 miles or 12.1 miles, their parent or guardian will sign the bottom of the log sheet certifying that the mileage has been completed. Bring the completed log sheet to the National Infantry Museum on Friday, November 17, 2017.
Why should the adults have all the fun? Well, we believe kids should also enjoy the sport of running by participating in the Kids Marathon and Half Marathon. Children age 3 to age 12 may run to accumulate 26.2 miles for a marathon or 13.1 miles for a half marathon. It’s all about having fun while encouraging an active lifestyle. The program is flexible enough for the experienced runner as well for as the beginning runner. Under the program, kids ages 6 to 12 will run 25.2 miles and kids ages 3 to 5 will run 12.1 miles prior to November 16, 2017. Everyone will run their final mile at the National Infantry Museum at 5:30 p.m. on November 17, 2017.
