After completing the first 25.2 miles of the marathon, your child can be part of the Little Rockers Kids Marathon Final Mile on Saturday, March 3rd.  This is a special event on race weekend where kids can run to their finish line, covering that final mile of the official Little Rock Marathon course.  Participants get all the swag deserving of a marathoner including shirt, medal, and finisher’s treats. Registration is required.  Adults can accompany kids but for safety and security of our children, we do ask that they be registered as well.
