Rocket City Kids Marathon

Kids can be part of the Rocket City Marathon excitement by participating in the Rocket City Kids Marathon. It is a non-competitive event for children in grades K - 8! Students can become marathon finishers on race day by completing a cumulative marathon training program in the weeks leading up to the race.

The Rocket City Kids Marathon is a 10 -12 week running program that encourages kids to complete a full marathon (26.2 miles) by running approximately 2 miles or more per week. The final mile is completed in grand fashion as each child finishes their marathon distance in front of cheering fans, friends, and family at the Official Finish Line of the Rocket City Marathon inside the Von Braun arena!

The goal of the Rocket City Kids Marathon, is to Inspire and Encourage children to be active on a regular basis through running and physical activity.

Participants must train for the last mile by running a total of 25.2 miles in various increments. Coaches, PE teachers, and parents can help by encouraging the child to run and then log their miles on the mileage log which will be made available on or before the Huntsville Hospital Autumn Chase Fun Run on September 21. The Fun Run will serve as the official kick off for the Rocket City Kids Marathon. Mileage Boosters will be held throughout the months of October and November to encourage the participants to increase their mileage.

The Kids Marathon is for all students in grades kindergarten- 8th grade. Participants will receive a medal and a t-shirt. All proceeds from the race will benefit a local charity.
