"The Most Beautiful Marathon In New England"
Congratulations to all the kids that participated in this great event!
All children in grades K - 8 are eligible to participate. Parents are highly encouraged to participate by logging miles with their children.
To promote physical fitness, nutritious eating and an overall healthy lifestyle.
The goal is to complete 25.2 miles of running/walking/activity prior to the Anthem Kids' Marathon, and then to participate in the race in Bristol, NH to complete the final mile at the Anthem Kids' Marathon.
2014 Race Details TBD
Running can be done anywhere . . . in a neighborhood, at the beach, at the ball field, or a local track. Students need to be sure they are running in a safe place. Parents need to know where their children are when running/walking. Everyone needs to stay safe.
Kids can run/walk with mom, dad, brother, sister, or friend. The buddy system keeps kids safe and offers encouragement to all. Wear a good pair of sneakers and try to keep one pair just for running. Encourage kids to talk while they run. This will help them maintain an appropriate pace. It is important for kid's to eat right, stay hydrated, and get plenty of sleep.
