The Five Points of Life Foundation and LifeSouth Community Blood Centers are excited to invite you to be a part of the annual Five Points of Life Kids Marathon Huntsville presented by Jerry Damson Honda. It will be held April 5, 2014 at Joe Davis Stadium.

The Five Points of Life Kids Marathon started in 2007 as part of the Five Points of Life Race Weekend held in Gainesville, Florida each February. The Kids Marathon series has expanded to nine cities and reached over 3,000 children in 2013. The goal of the Kids Marathon is to promote good health and physical fitness by giving kids the opportunity to run or walk an entire 26.2 miles, just like marathoners.

To participate kids, Kindergarten through 8th grade, complete 25 miles, one at a time, during the months prior to the marathon, logging each mile on the log sheet. To finish the full marathon kids will run the last 1.2 miles on April 5th, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. at Joe Davis Stadium. All participants will receive a Kids Marathon Huntsville race packet, race number (must be worn on race day), t-shirt and finishers medal. Kids must register in order to participate.
