Kids can be part of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Los Angeles Half Marathon race weekend excitement by participating in the 2nd annual ING KiDS ROCK Los Angeles. ING KiDS ROCK, is a non-timed, non-competitive event for children in grades K – 7! Kids can become marathon finishers on race day by completing a cumulative marathon training program in the weeks leading up to the race. Or, they can simply choose to run the 1-mile course on race day.
