Kids' Marathon

Twelfth Annual Kids' Marathon Event

Shannon is hosting the twelfth annual Kids’ Marathon Celebration Event on Thursday, April 18 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at San Angelo Stadium. Students in kindergarten through sixth grade are invited to attend to run the “celebration lap” and participate in fun fitness activities and games.

The Kids’ Marathon program encourages local students to form healthy exercise habits early in life. The program begins in January when students are encouraged to walk or run a total of 26 miles prior to the “celebration lap,” where they can complete the final 0.2 miles around the stadium track in April. All students are welcome to run the final “celebration lap” at this come-and-go family event.

Other community organizations will be on-hand with free fun activities and information about upcoming summer programs to keep kids active and motivated. Participants will automatically be entered into a drawing for Angelo State University and SAISD season sports passes and other prizes. Local athletes and mascots from ASU, Central High School and Lake View High School will also be on the field to join in the festivities and pose for photos. The first 350 participants will receive a Kids’ Marathon race tag and finisher’s medal.

Special thanks to sponsors Team Chip Martial Arts, San Angelo Independent School District, Angelo State University, Baylor University Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty, CATCH In Motion, Angelo Awards and Shannon Medical Center.
