LITTLE ROCKERS KIDS MARATHON: Date: March 4, 2017 The Little Rockers Kids Marathon is an event that gives children, ages 7-12, the opportunity to complete a modified marathon over an extended period of time. Kids complete 25.2 miles prior to race day using the Little Rockers Kids Marathon Training Program. Participants have several months to complete the miles on their own or through their school (if their school is officially participating in the program) by running, jogging or walking. On March 4, 2017, all participants finish their marathon as they run the last mile of the actual course and cross the official Little Rock Marathon finish line. The mission of the Little Rockers Kids Marathon is to provide participants ages 7-12 with the opportunity to enhance their physical activity while focusing on reaching a goal. We hope to motivate children to commit to a health and fitness routine and experience the overall rewards of achieving their goals, not only in crossing the finish line but in life as well. If you would like to start a program at your child's school, place of worship, community or civic group, please contact: Jennifer Pomerleau, rjerog@att.net For more information, visit the Little Rockers section of www.littlerockmarathon.com

This was my second year to run this race. It was difficult the first year, but the second seemed harder even though my time was seconds off my first years time. The scenery is nice and the awards are super unique.

Great Race! Crowd is supportive, the race directors are very well organized, and the first half of the race is very scenic but can be hilly. You won't get bored on the first half. Race is also great because it has a marathon, half marathon, 4-person relay, 5K race, and a Kid's race.

I loved this marathon...it's in my hometown, so the crowd appeal was heightened by a few familiar faces. The side-line supporters carried us runners well, know them or not. The Southern Hospitality IS there--area restaurants, and the entire downtown area know the runners are coming in. I watched many eateries make fun changes near race-day, with food specifically geared to a distance runner's needs. My only regret was missing out on those unique awardsl!~ didn't know to stay around for the awards ceremony, and never got the "bling."..but I DID get a great t-shirt, and a some well-done snapshots from the race's end.
