Together the Mill Creek Elementary PTO, Sunset Elementary PTO and Nolensville Elementary PTO have joined together to form the inaugural Nolensville Community Kids Marathon taking place on April 21st. This event will allow us to give back to all three schools PTO’s, which directly benefit each school.
The Nolensville Community Kids Marathon mission is to instill running as a part of a healthy lifestyle in our kids at an early age. Getting regular exercise is an important component in reaching a healthy lifestyle, one which is properly incorporated into our motto: RUN+EAT+DANCE+LAUGH. The Race Course will be 1 Mile. Why is this called a Marathon? The idea is that students will train with their school’s run club to run 25.2 miles before the event.* The last mile will be run, at the Mill Creek/Nolensville High School campus, where each student will complete the entire 26.2 mile marathon. Once they cross the finish line, each runner will receive their own Nolensville Community Kids Marathon finishing medal.
*We understand that each school may not have a running club. Students do not have to be in a running club to participate. The 25.2 miles will be on the honor system.
There are several ways for kid runners to participate in the Nolensville Community Kids Marathon:
1.0 mile fun run (each grade level will run at staggered times)
Run with your child: Parents or Guardians are welcome to run with your child and do not need to register in order to do so. You will be required to wear the duplicate bib if your child is K-1st Grades. Parents with children are asked to start to the back or sides to allow other children right of way. Pets and strollers are not allowed.
After the race, join us where their will be food trucks, a DJ and dancing to celebrate their accomplishments and have even more fun!
This event will take place rain or shine! Registrations are non-refundable and non-transferable.
