Time running out to register for Marathon Junior

October 23, 2012 8:28pm

 If your kid is 14-under and likes to run, there’s still time — but not much time — to sign him or her up for the Call Federal Credit Union Marathon Junior this Saturday (October 27). Entries will be accepted online until Wednesday, October 24 at 11:59 p.m. This is the event’s inaugural year.

The event offers several distance options including a 0.5-mile run (7 & under), 1-mile run (10 & under), and a 2-mile run (14 & under). All three courses will be located throughout Byrd Park. Packet pick-up and registration will take place at Byrd Park (600 S. Boulevard) adjacent to Fountain Lake from 8 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. The races then begin at 10:00 a.m., 10:15 a.m., and 10:35 a.m. respectively.

The 1-mile and 2-mile runs will be chip timed, and the top three male and female finishers in each distance will receive awards. The top three finishers in each age group will be mailed awards after the event. Since the event will be held right before Halloween, kids will be given a chance to “Give their Halloween Costumes a Test Run.” Prize for the most “BOO-tiful” costumes will be distributed. Entry fee includes chip timing, participant t-shirt, finisher medal and post-race food.

Online registration for the Call Federal Credit Union Marathon Jr. is available at The entry fee is $15 for all distances through October 24. Entry fees will increase by $5 on event day. Entries are non-refundable, non-transferable and cannot be deferred to another year. All participants must be at least 4 years old on event day to participate. For more information, visit
