The Kids Marathon originated in Gainesville, Florida in 2007 as a part of the Five Points of Life Race Weekend which is held each February. The Kids Marathon series has now expanded to ten cities with over 4,000 participants annually. The goal of the Kids Marathon is to promote good health and physical fitness by giving kids the opportunity to run or walk an entire 26.2 miles, just like marathoners.
To participate kids, kindergarten through eighth grade, complete 25 miles, one at a time, during the months prior to the marathon, logging each mile on the log sheet. To finish the full marathon kids will run the last 1.2 miles on May 2, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. All participants will receive a Kids Marathon Huntsville race packet, race number (must be worn on race day), t-shirt and finishers medal. Kids must register in order to participate.
Packets will be available for pick up starting at 7 a.m. on race day at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center.
Participants need to arrive at the start line (U.S. Space & Rocket Center, 1 Tranquility Base, Huntsville, AL 35805) by 7:55 a.m. on May 2 with their race numbers on. The race will begin promptly at 8 a.m.
Course map TBD.
Only one parent or guardian will be permitted to accompany each participant on the 1.2 mile run. Other family members and friends are encouraged to attend and cheer on the participants during the run from the stands. Parents should not register to run. Only the kids will need to register in order to receive a t-shirt, race bib, and finisher’s medal.
We have created a certificate of achievement for you to fill out and give to those children that have completed any mileage for the LifeSouth Community Foundation Kids Marathon.
