What it is – A fun way for kids age 14 & under to set a fitness goal and complete a marathon at the same time! Kids who take on the Kids Marathon Challenge commit to running a total of 25.3 miles between January 1st and April 6th. That’s less than 2 miles a week! On Sunday April 7th, you can join hundreds of other kids at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield to run the final 0.9 miles to finish their marathon, with an exciting finish in the 1STBANK Center Stadium where they will receive their Kids Marathon Challenge finisher medal. The cost of doing this event is $15 and you get a t shirt (or cape) and a special 26.2 bib number.
We will be reinstating the Mileage Club as a way for you to rack up your miles at recess before April 7th, but you can also walk or run mileage on your own as long as you keep track. There are special sheets available to track your mileage or you can make your own. If you want to run but don’t want to do the Kids Marathon Challenge in Broomfield, you can do it all here at K8. We will celebrate our mileage here before school is out. More information is
