CHECK OUT THE CHEVRON KIDS MARATHON EXTENDED RACE PROGRAM

Everyone runs on Race Day. But if you are interested in more than the 1.2 mile race day fun run, we also offer families, schools and kids organizations multi-week race programs that add up to 26.2 miles.

The following weekly race programs total 25 miles and the final homestretch – a 1.2 mile fun run – is held on race day for a total of 26.2. In addition to running, kids are encouraged to track 30 minutes of activity to supplement a mile. Track performance and make running a part of your kid’s active lifestyle.

Once across the finish line, they receive their own Chevron Kids Marathon finishing medal.

And don’t forget, kids do not have to complete the whole program to run on race day. Our goal is to encourage healthy and active lifestyles. Even if you hear about the kids 1.2 mile fun run at the last minute, come on out, we’d love to see you!


MULTI-WEEK 30 MIN = 1 MILE PROGRAM

Start Anytime and Track Activity Each Day to Equal 25 Miles and then Run 1.2 Miles on Race-Day

Promoting an active lifestle comes first. Running as a part of that lifestyle comes with time. No need to push a multi-week running program on a kid when they just want to play. Use our ACTIVITY BOOK pages and the our 30 MIN = 1 MILE TRACKING MAP to accumulate 25 “miles” before race-day. Then run 1.2 Miles on Race-Day.

Run with your school by selecting the name during online registration or run as an individual.
