We are so excited to feature this year the Kids Southern Tennessee Power Classic marathon and Half Marathon! This is a great way for a child 10 and under to be part of this event while learning the importance of healthy activities and having fun with family and friends.

RequirementsEach child will use the official mile log attached to keep track of all but one mile of a full marathon or a half marathon. The participant can work at his or her own pace and weekly distance to obtain their individual goal. The attached training guide will help each child learn how to make healthy choices during the course of his/her training.


Race day ActivitiesIn order to participate, each child must be accompanied by a specified adult or guardian of legal age. Your child will run or walk the final mile with you.
