I am happy to see various movements across the country that are promoting health and fitness with our youth. Obesity amongst young people is at staggering percentages and one of the best ways to curb and reverse those numbers is to introduce them to various sports and get them moving. So on January 21, throw some sneakers on your kiddos and get them movin’ in the annual Kids Marathon Mile that take place at LEGOLAND® California.
This Kids Marathon Mile is in conjunction with the Tri-City Medical Center Carlsbad Full & Half Marathon that takes place on Sunday, January 22nd. LEGOLAND California is the venue sponsor for this kids race and though the race is intended for kids 12 and under, anyone can participate.
All registered race participants receive an event T-shirt, free Child ticket to LEGOLAND California and SEA LIFE Carlsbad Aquarium, 50% off admission to LEGOLAND for two guests, a shiny finisher’s medal plus a free child UltraStar Cinemas movie pass. Parents can either be registered participants, or can sign up to be companions for a lower fee.
Entry rates go up in price in a few days so check active.com for details on how to register.
There is also an option to do a “run for your school” fundraiser if you have ten or more students, parents and/or teachers, so check out the CarlsbadMarathon.com website for details.
The race is just for fun and therefore not timed, so I won’t say, “I’ll race ya!” But, I am really looking forward to doing this race with my family and I hope to see you out there!
