Kids 13.1 Half Marathon​

The Kids Half Marathon​

The Kids Half Marathon is a great way for kids 12 and under to participate in the Rochester Regional Health Flower City Challenge. As a participant, your child will run or walk the distance of a half marathon (13.1 miles) over the course of three weeks.

How It Works

At the Kids Half Marathon Kickoff (TBD at 10 am at Fleet Feet @ The Armory (155 Culver Rd, Rochester, NY 14620)), the first mile will be run together. This is where you will receive everything you need to complete the Kids Half Marathon. Then using the honor system, your child will track the miles they run or walk (in 1/4 mile increments) on their official tracking form. Their goal should be to complete 4 miles each week for a total of 12 miles.

To keep them motivated along the way, they can bring their tracking form into any Fleet Feet location (Armory: 155 Culver Road | Ridgeway: 2522 Ridgeway Avenue | Victor: 237 High Street Ext) to receive a high five and a toe token once they've reached certain milestones. These rewards are available at any time the stores are open.

On Sunday, October 25th at 10:40 am we'll gather at the Blue Cross Arena (corner of Exchange and Court) to complete the final 1.1 miles of their half marathon. Once they cross the official Rochester Regional Health Flower City Half Marathon finish line, they'll receive their official Kids Half Marathon finisher's medal!
