Kids Can Rock a Marathon
SUBWAY® KiDS ROCK San Antonio registration now open
Kids can be part of the Humana Rock 'n' Roll San Antonio Marathon weekend excitement by participating in SUBWAY® KiDS Rock powered by San Antonio Sports. This non-competitive, non-timed one-mile fun run for kids in grades K-7 will be held at Brackenridge Park on Dec. 3. Kids can become marathon finishers on race day by completing a cumulative marathon training program in the weeks leading up to the race. They accumulate 25.1 miles over an eight week training period and finish the final mile on race day. Children are also able to participate in the mile run without completing the training program. An entry includes a single-day ticket to the San Antonio Zoo (good Dec. 3 or Dec. 4), a medal, t-shirt and goodie bag.
San Antonio Sports has distributed 175,000 training logs and entry forms to elementary schools throughout Bexar County. Training logs can also be found at local SUBWAY restaurants or registration can be done online at SanAntonioSports.org/kidsrock. Additionally, a special promo code for a $10 registration fee will be offered at San Antonio area Subway restaurants between Oct. 15 and Nov. 27. The standard entry fee is $25.
More than 3,000 children are expected to participate.
The 2016 event course includes a 1-mile run through Brackenridge Park. Children and families can enjoy the park or visit the San Antonio Zoo following the race.
“Our goal is to encourage kids to live healthy and active lifestyles,” said Russ Bookbinder, President & CEO, San Antonio Sports. “We are looking forward to another great event and helping our young participants complete their one mile or cumulative marathon. And each finisher gets to enjoy a day at the San Antonio Zoo, too!”
KiDS ROCK San Antonio takes place in conjunction with the 9th annual Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio Marathon & ½ Marathon on Sunday, December 4. For more information or to register please visit kidsrock.competitor.com.
