Kids, Get Ready to Rock!
Saturday, January 17, 2015
Location: Tempe Beach Park
Finishing a marathon is child’s play with KiDS ROCK Arizona – a one-mile fun run for children in grades K – 6. This non-competitive, non-timed event is all about having fun and making it to the finish line.
Participants can become full marathon finishers by completing a 25.2-mile training program prior to January 17th or they can just run, walk or jog the one-mile course on race day. Every child is a winner and will be rewarded with an official race number, T-shirt, goodie bag, and colorful medal – just for finishing!
Run with your Friends!
School/Team registration is now open. There is no fee to be a team. However you need a minimum of 10 registered participants. Being an official KiDS ROCK Team allows your team name to be listed in our registration system and allows you to pick-up your student’s race numbers and t-shirts.
