Kids on The Run and Kids Marathon*

are non-competitive running events for children and young people age 17 and younger.  All events take place on the paved trails of Bohrer Park in the City of Gaithersburg.  Children do not run on roads.  There is a 'rabbit' runner who will lead the children in each event.  There is a 'sweeper' who follows behind for each event insuring everyone makes it back to the finish line.  There are multiple opportunities to see and cheer for the runners.   

Participation prizes to all finishers of this non-competitive event;

  • Special ribbons for all Toddler Trot and Half-Mile Event finishers!
  • Medals for all One-Mile Finishers!
  • Medals, Awards and Special Prizes for all Kids Marathon* (2K) Finishers!
