2012 KIDS ROCK Arizona


Kids, Get Ready to Rock!


Saturday, January 14, 2012

9 AM

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 14th 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!
