Kids Marathon Montgomery Presented by W.K. Upchurch
The Five Points of Life and LifeSouth Community Blood Centers are excited to invite you to be a part of the 3nd annual Five Points of Life Kids Marathon Montgomery presented by W.K. Upchurch Construction on March 9, 2013.
The Kids Marathon started in 2007 as part of the Five Points of Life Race Weekend held annually in Gainesville, Florida each February. The Five Points of Life Kids Marathon series has expanded to eight cities and reached over 3,000 children in 2012. 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 March 9, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. All participants will receive a Kids Marathon Montgomery race packet, race number (must be worn on race day), t-shirt and finishers medal. Kids must register in order to participate.
