Thank you to the Prairie Care Medical Group for their generous sponsorhip of the Kids Marathon.
Tentative 2017 schedule is as follows
Saturday May 27th, 2017 12:30 p.m.
The Med City Kids’ Marathon is held every year during Memorial Day Weekend. It is open to all students in grades K-8. The goal is for students to run a marathon a little at a time. Each participant logs 25 miles prior to the run and completes the marathon of 26.2 miles by running 1.2 miles in this event. The run is free and each finisher receives a well-deserved marathon medal. Parents/Guardians may run with their runner. All accompanied adults please step off the course before the finish except Kindergarten parents/guardians. Runners will meet supervising adults at the exit gates surrounding the fenced off finish area. These exit gates will be controlled by security personnel. Prior to the start of the run a numbered tab on the bottom of the runner’s bib should be removed and kept by the parent/guardian to match the bib number of the runner at the finish. For safety reasons the prior training runs must be completed under the supervision of a guardian or parent.
To help you track those miles we have a tracking sheet available. Click HERE for your tracking sheet, if you have registered online you DO NOT need to send this form in!
