Announcing the CWS Rockin' Fit Kids Virtual Marathon July 23 – September 18

Rockcastle Regional Hospital and the Countywide Stride race series is challenging families to stay fit during these unusual times. We’re offering an incentive for kids 12 and under to safely walk, run or bike a total of 26.2 miles (the official distance of a marathon) in increments from July 23 - Sept. 18. This free activity is virtual, so the distance can be completed anywhere that is safe and under adult supervision.

When you register your child, you’ll download an information sheet along with a marathon mileage tracker (link below). When you send us your child’s completed tracker, we’ll send a finisher medal, and your child will be entered to win a kid’s Fitbit fitness/activity tracker. E-mail proof of completion to k.prewitt@rhrcc.org by Tuesday, Sept. 22.

Commemorative event t-shirts are available to purchase for $10.

Attention Parents/Guardians:

  • Be sure your child is accompanied by an adult when running, walking, or riding.
  • Be sure your child has had a recent physical and is healthy enough for physical exertion.
  • Children may be particularly susceptible to heat. It is best for them not to exercise outside in the hottest part of the day. Be sure to hydrate with water or electrolyte solutions (not juice or soda) before, during, and after physical activity.  
  • It is best to complete this activity in an area where there is little to no traffic (sidewalk, school track, etc.) Be sure your child wears a helmet when bicycling.
  • If you do not have a stopwatch that tracks mileage, you may estimate the distance.
