Join us on Saturday, December 12th as we kick off race weekend with the Scott & White Health Plan BCS Kid’s Marathon.
The 1.2 mile race will be open to any child 12 and under. Each child who participates will be greeted at the finish with a custom finisher’s medal. We are excited about involving the entire family for race weekend!
All races start at Wolf Pen Creek, next to Post Oak Mall, and the entry fee is $15 per child, but hurry because prices go up after November 14. Start times for the Kid’s Marathon will be in waves as shown below. We will start on time, so please plan to arrive early for your child’s race start.
Wave 1 – 12:30 PM 3-4 year olds (parents required to run w/children)
Wave 2 – 12:45 PM 5-6 year olds
Wave 3 – 1:00 PM 7-8 year olds
Wave 4 – 1:15 PM 9-10 year olds
Wave 5 – 1:30 PM 11-12 year olds
Promoting healthy living in our schools
This fall, leading up to the BCS Kid’s Marathon, we will be partnering with both BISD and CSISD to establish a running program into every single elementary school in Bryan and College Station. By doing so, more than 13,000 kids will be running each week with the goal of totaling 25 miles between the start of school and the December race. The BCS Kid’s Marathon will represent the final 1.2 miles of this running program, finishing out the marathon distance. We hope all families – those local as well as traveling to town – will join us on December 12th to celebrate running for all ages.
