2020 KIDS MARATHON
Final Mile - Friday, September 25, 2020 at Parkview Field in Downtown Fort Wayne
The Fort4Fitness Kids Marathon, sponsored by Lutheran Children's Hospital, is easy to do and fun for all!
The Kids Marathon is designed for kids ages 4-14 and has been created to promote exercise, wellness, and healthy lifestyles for kids and their families through a variety of unique training programs and events. Fort4Fitness operates under a simple premise: the sooner we can instill healthy lifestyles in our kids, the better health they will have later in life. A major contributor to a healthy lifestyle is getting regular exercise.
The goal of Kids Marathon is for each registered child to complete a marathon throughout the summer by logging miles through walking, running, biking, swimming, playing baseball, and more. They rack up 25 miles or more during the summer and then complete their final 1.2 miles at the Fall Festival on Friday night. Throughout the summer, the Kickoff and Family Fun & Fitness events are held as a way to provide an opportunity to log miles and take part in fun activities centered around health and fitness. The activities are organized by Lutheran Health Network, listed below.
In 2019, 1,100 area kids took strides towards a more fit lifestyle while participating in the Fort4Fitness Kids Marathon. 2020 promises to be the biggest and best year yet. Don't miss it!
