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 Mobile presented to Infirmary Health. It will be held January 12, 2014 in conjunction with the Servis1st Bank First Light Marathon.

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 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 January 12, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. at the NW Corner of Bienville Square (St. Francis and Conception Streets). All participants will receive a Kids Marathon Mobile race packet, race number (must be worn on race day), t-shirt and finishers medal. Kids must register in order to participate.
