We are calling on all kids to come be a part of the Provo City Kids Marathon! We hope to encourage healthy lifestyles by creating a challenging but fun event for children in School Grades K – 6. Here is how it works: Register your child for the Provo City Kids Marathon. Download the Marathon Running Log and keep track of each mile your child runs by signing the log. Bring the completed running log to Packet Pick-up prior to race day (see event details page for ppu information) to pick up your child’s running bib and qualify him or her to receive a medal at the finish line. In order to earn a finisher’s medal, each child will need to run a total of 25 miles before race day and on race morning he or she will run the final 1.2 miles with all the other children registered for the Kids Marathon! Children who do not wish to pre-run the 25 miles may still register to run the final 1.2 miles on race day, however they will not be eligible for the marathon finisher’s medal.
RACE DAY INSTRUCTIONS: On race day, we’ll be making several announcements between 8:30-9:45am of Kid’s Marathon check-in details. At roughly 9:50am the kids will be lined up at their start line just on the west side of the half marathon finish line chute. At 10:00am, we launch the race and all of our young speedsters will race north on University Ave. until roughly 500 N. At that point, they’ll turn around and run back inside the Half Marathon course and finish in our official Half Marathon Finish Line where they’ll be greeted and celebrated by our volunteers!
All kids marathon participants will receive a race shirt, goody bag and kids finisher medal to show off their incredible accomplishment of running a marathon distance!
