Little Rockers Kids Marathon encourages children to become more active by following a fun, simple running and/or walking program.
The goal for each child is to complete at least 25.2 miles before the first weekend in March. Then, on race day, children will complete their last mile on the official Little Rock Marathon course.
Each child that crosses the finish line receives an official finisher's medal.
The mission of the Little Rockers Kids Marathon is to give children (ages 7-12) the opportunity to enhance their physical activity while focusing on reaching a goal. The hope is to motivate children to commit to a physical routine, which will allow them to experience the overall benefits of achieving their goals, not only in crossing the finish line but in life as well.
