The OC Marathon is excited to host the 5th annual Kids Run the OC on Saturday, May 2, 2009. The 10-week training begins in February 2009 and many Orange County schools are already involved!

If your child's school is already involved, contact your school representative for specific dates and times. If you are interested in getting involved in the program, please email us at kidsruntheoc@ocmarathon.com to be put in touch with a Kids Run The OC representative.

All participants in the training program will receive:

  • On campus Training Program
  • One entry into Kids Run The OC
  • Official Kids Run The OC T-shirt
  • Goodie Bag
  • Finisher’s Medal

Soon after the race, an awards assembly will be held at your child’s school, in which a Certificate of Completion will also be awarded. About The Training Program

The Kids Run The OC Training Program was designed to help pre-adolescent kids become more physically fit, promote an active and healthy lifestyle and combat the onset of childhood obesity. . . while having fun! This is accomplished through various games, which help improve speed, agility, hand/eye coordination, flexibility and your child's overall fitness. Students from each participating school will be led through our popular and fun training program at their school by The OC Marathon certified coach. By the end of the program each student will have accumulated the equivalent of 25.2 miles of fun activity, and will be ready to finish their own Marathon by completing their final mile at the Kids Run The OC held in conjunction with The OC Marathon finish line events at the OC Fair and Event Center on Saturday, May 2, 2009.

The Avia OC Marathon is proud to have the support of the OC Department of Education for the 2009 Kids Run the OC event. Orange County Superintendent of Schools, William M. Habermehl, stated, "Increasing the physical fitness of our students is linked to better overall health and higher academic performance. Learning about fitness and nutrition in a fun environment is the reason that the Orange County Kids Run program, which started with 400 youth in 2005, has expanded to over 1,500 in 2008. In these tough budget times, I am pleased that schools will be able to use this exciting program not only to encourage physical fitness, but to raise money for schools." How do I get my child’s school involved?
