Youth Marathon

All participants will complete a Mileage Tracker that will be kept by their teacher. The Mileage Tracker will keep track of each mile the student runs prior to the event on October 9, 2016. Each student logs 12 miles or 25.1 miles on his or her log by having a teacher sign for each mile completed. On the day of the Marathon, the kids will run the final 1.1 miles on a course designed for kids. Each participant will receive a gift at the expo as well as a t-shirt. To download a Mileage Tracker go to
