Finishing a marathon is child’s play with the MISSOULA KIDS MARATHON! This non-competitive, non-timed, race is a combination of a logging marathon and a one-mile fun run for children in grades K-6. It’s all about having fun and making it to the finish line on July 11th, 2015!
Participants can become full marathon finishers by completing a 25 mile training program prior to race day and then they can run, walk or jog the 1.2 mile course on race day. Every child is a winner and will be rewarded with an official race number, T-shirt, goodie bag, and colorful medal– just for finishing!
HOW TO LOG YOUR MILES: To download and print the mileage log, click Kid’s Marathon Log. To earn miles, you can walk, swim, roll, hike, and of course, run! Some ideas: participating schools will have running clubs to help you log miles; if you are playing a sport, check off miles for any time you walk, run or swim in your sport; join Missoula Youth Track Club in the spring; walk or run in local races throughout the spring and early summer! Mileage logs are to help get you motivated (you don’t have to turn them in)!
Packet Pickup: Packet pickup will be held on Friday, July 10th, from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. in the Run Wild Missoula (located in the basement of Runner’s Edge, 304 N Higgins). Packets may also be picked up on race day, Saturday, July 11th, from 8:30 – 9:30 at the race start.
