The Publix Atlanta Kids’ Marathon will show kids what it means to be a part of a big city marathon. Held at the same location where the Publix Atlanta Marathon will take place the following day, this race gives kids ages 14 and younger the chance to get out, get active and become acquainted with running as they finish under the Publix Atlanta Marathon finish line.
Compete as an individual or as a team
This race is a chance for kids to see who is Atlanta’s fastest kid, and which team is Atlanta’s fastest. Awards will be given to the top three boys and girls in each age group for the 2.62K, and to the three teams with the fastest average time (min. 15 participants). Additionally, teams can compete for up to $2,000 in grant money by bringing the most participants.
