Kids Marathon Mile clicks into place

November 28, 2013 by  

The Kids Marathon Mile will take place at LEGOLAND in January attracting thousands of kids and adults from surrounding cities, including Sorrento Valley and San Diego. It is geared toward ages 12 and younger and is open to everyone

The event presents staged races appropriate the various age groups. The marathon mile will start outside the main entrance and will finish at the Tyke Hike. The races loop within the theme park, and post-race activities will take place at LEGOLAND in the lower parking lot area.

Each child participating in a race from ages 3 to 12 will receive a T-shirt, a medal, and a park ticket for Sea Life Hopper. The ticket includes admission to the Sea Life Aquarium and LEGOLAND.

The Kids Marathon Mile race is scheduled for January 8, with the races starting at 8:00 am. Most outdoor races have banners throughout the area to guide traffic and racers along the way. Banner printing is a frequent request for print companies in preparation for races, with banners usually printed on heavy vinyl to handle weather conditions. Lettering needs to be easily seen when hung across buildings or between posts.

Local schools may participate in fundraising for the entity by registering 10 or more students. Parents and faculty may participate as well. A $2 donation from each entry fee is credited back to the school.
