The ING KiDS ROCK is a nationwide series of road races and training programs for kids that operates in conjunction with the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series. This successful kids-focused extension is currently the largest kids-only running series in the U.S. and is continuing to expand.
Through four-, six- and eight-week training programs, kids can train with parents, teachers, coaches and friends to work toward the common goal of completing a total of 26 or 13 miles. On race day, participants come together to complete their final mile on the course and become official ING KiDS ROCK finishers. All finishers receive a medal, t-shirt and goodie bag for their accomplishments.
The ING KiDS ROCK mission is to fight childhood obesity, promote youth fitness and raise awareness of the need for healthy lifestyles. ING KiDS ROCK will impact the lives of children in eleven markets across the U.S. in 2013.
FINISH LINE CELEBRATION
ING KiDS ROCK provides a unique, safe, positive, family-friendly event with a lively Finish Line Festival to celebrate each participant’s significant achievement.
