The Little Rockers Kids Marathon is a non-competitive program/event that offers children 1st through 6th grades the opportunity to enhance their physical activity (by following a fun, simple running and/or walking program) while focusing on reaching a goal.
Participants run or walk at least 25.2 miles in the weeks leading up to race weekend. On race day, they complete their marathon on the official Little Rock Marathon course.
Little Rockers was launched in 2004 in response to the growing concern over our children’s health and the increasing childhood obesity rates. Since that time, more than 90,000 children across the country have taken part in the Little Rockers Kids Marathon Final Mile and free training program.
Our FREE turn-key, website-based program is available to all individuals, schools, and youth organizations in any city.
- Open to all 1st through 6th grades! Children in grades higher than 6th are encouraged to register for the Little Rock 5K.
- Parents/Guardians who choose to participate with their child on race day, MUST register as an adult. Only adults with a child participating can register.
- Little Rockers receive a shirt, race number, and a finishers’ medal. Parents receive a race number, which allows them access to the course.
