LOOKING FOR A FUN WAY TO INVOLVE YOUR KIDDOS THIS THANKSGIVING...JOIN IN THE FUN: 

KIDS FUN RUN:  The Kids Fun Run is for those that want to have a little bit of fun on Thanksgiving Day. Price is $15 and kids will receive a tee and a fun run medal. 

GOBBLE WOBBLE KIDS MARATHON: This is also for the kids that want to have some fun on Thanksgiving Day! Kids Marathon, you ask? 

Here are all the details:  

- Receive a special "Kids Marathon Gobble Wobble" medal for completing a TOTAL of 26.2 miles! As well as a tee! **Please note that the "Kids Marathon" event is separate from the Kids Fun Run.

- The last 1.2 miles will be completed at the Gobble Wobble Kids Marathon on Thanksgiving Day  (Nov. 22nd at 9:30am!)

- Child must have completed the 25th mile prior to race day (Gobble Wobble Kids Marathon).

- Please ensure you sign your child up early enough to allow for your child to complete a total of 25 miles prior to the Gobble Wobble Marathon.

- Your child can run, walk, hike during the weeks leading up to the Kids Marathon. Your child can run whenever and wherever is most suitable for him/her. Some examples might be the Greenway, treadmill, neighborhood, park, school, etc.

**Upon signing up, please download the attached Marathon Progress Tracker Sheet located at the bottom of the page.  You will see where you can fill in the distance your child ran on each specific day (i.e. Oct. 2nd ran 1/2 mile). Please sign at the end of each week. This is how you will keep track of total mileage leading up to the Kids Marathon. Please bring the Marathon Progress Tracker to packet pickup. We will verify that all 25 miles have been run prior to the Kids Marathon. (This is an honor system progress tracker.) 

Packet pickup for the Gobble Wobble Kids Marathon will be on Nov. 20th & Nov. 21st
