Yesterday in Tempe Arizona as part of the Rock and Roll Marathon, an event called kids rock was held.
Kids from K-8 Grade run a total of 25.2 miles over several months prior to this event. Then the kids run the last mile (non-competitively) and everyone gets a medal for finishing. A very nice looking medal!
Over 3000 kids participated in the event! It is a great way to get kids into a healthy activity while they are young. My 6 yr old (11.5 min) beat my 8yr old and her 9 yr old friend, but as I said it was non-competitive :)
