Location: The ASH Centre located at 1701 Freeman Street in Fort Wayne
Cost: $10 registration for the entire program

The 2014 Fort4Fitness Kids Marathon (designed for kids ages 4-14) gets underway Monday, June 30th with the Kick-Off event at the ASH Centre (1701 Freeman Street) from 3-7 p.m., and concludes with the "final mile" at Parkview Field Friday, September 26, 2014 at the 7th Annual Fort4Fitness Fall Festival Expo.  2013 saw a record number of kids (836) participate in the Kids Marathon, and we're hoping for even more in 2014.

Fort4Fitness provides a fun and effective way to encourage kids to exercise by providing a free, flexible and practical training program. All that’s needed to begin is an adult registering their child and then you get to choose the program that best fits your child and your family. (Register here).

The Kids Marathon training programs are designed to make exercise fun and achievable for kids. The program includes:
•A combination of running activities and other fitness fun
•Incentives to recognize and reward runners
•Tips on how to get started and how to keep training exciting
•Proper running techniques and strategies
•Tools to track progress, including a downloadable tailored log

The program allows your child to set a goal, have the reward of achieving that goal and then coming together in a fun-filled supportive environment in September to celebrate and recognize their success. Our goal is to help children in our community develop a foundation for healthy habits and fitness that will continue for generations to come.
