Rod Dixon’s KiDSMARATHON
Do you think your kids can run a marathon?
They CAN do it, and we will show them how!
This program will help them run or walk their way to 26.2 miles in just 10 weeks!
FREE!! FREE!! FREE!! FREE!! FREE!!
This program is open to all students in Grades K – 5. Participants will run or walk with their friends and coaches on Mondays and Wednesdays starting April 1, 2019 – May 29, 2019 from 6:00pm – 7:00pm at the Middletown High School Track. They will follow a training schedule with their running and/or walking adding up to an amazing 25.2 miles! The kids will join in on a huge FINAL MILE CELEBRATION event to cap off their achievement in front of family and friends cheering them on at the Junior Classic held on Saturday, June 1, 2019 at the Twin Towers Middle School Track.
Participants will learn the fun of staying healthy and fit. They will gain confidence from setting a goal, seeing it through and become WINNERS as they FINISH a total of 26.2 miles!
Parents, encourage your kids to participate in KiDSMARATHON. No experience is necessary! All they need is a willingness to get their bodies moving. They will get in shape for spring and summer activities and won’t say they are bored in the evenings. They can chat with their friends while they walk or run together and create memories to last a lifetime.
Our program begins on Monday, April 1st and runs every Monday and Wednesday until May 29th from 6:00pm – 7:00pm at Middletown High School Track. All participants’ miles will be tracked by our coaches.
At the FINAL MILE CELEBRATION, students will join together and march in just like the Olympics! Our kids will get cheered on to run their final mile of the KiDSMARATHON. All participants will be awarded with a medal and a t-shirt! (Don’t worry if you can’t make the final mile celebration…do the training with us and add some extra laps the final week, and we will pick up your awards for you! You are still a WINNER!)
