KiDSMARATHON has teamed up with Bring Back the Mile in the promotion of The Mile, a track distance that has incredible cultural significance and appeal but has been diminished in favor of arbitrary 1600m and Olympic 1500m distances in today's track and field scene. One mile is the distance kids run for their celebration event at the end of the KiDSMARATHON program. Our goal with BBTM is to promote the Mile as a metric for improvement in elementary school children. It is then our hope to see kids continue to run the Mile in middle & high school programs across the country.
