Dear Student,

On your mark! Get set! GO!!! We are enthusiastic to share with you our exciting Kids Marathon Challenge! Accomplishing a 26.2 mile marathon is every runner’s ultimate dream. Now, we do not expect you to run 26.2 miles all at once! But, we encourage you to run a marathon distance over a period of time and log your runs each time until you reach 26.2 miles!

I know. I know. You might be saying to yourself, “I cannot run, nor do I know how to run.” Well, guess what?! Running is easier than you think. Like anything else in life, practice improves your performance.

After you complete each run, either short or long, you log the distance into your Kids Marathon Challenge (KMC) Official Tracker sheet. Then, you MUST get a signature from an adult such as a parent, coach, gym teacher, or race director. At the end of each week, total the number of miles you ran.  When you complete 25.2 miles, email us at

During your running journey, we encourage you to share your stories by posting them as well as pictures on our Bookin’ for Lookin’ Kids Marathon Challenge blog page. You will be able to see how many miles you and other runners have run!

To celebrate your accomplishment, you can run your final mile and receive cheers crossing the finish line at the Kids 1 Mile Fun Run during the Bookin’ for Lookin’ Race Event at 8:15 AM on Sunday, April 9, 2017. You will be recognized for your hard work and determination at an awards ceremony. You will also receive cool swag, including a certificate, t-shirt and medal!

Think you can complete the Kids Marathon Challenge? Give it a shot! You will not know unless you try! So, what are you waiting for? Download the tracker sheet and start running today!
