All “Marathon Kids” runners are invited to attend the finisher celebration on Thursday, July 13 at 6 p.m. at the Ava City Park and Pool. Runners are asked to wear their marathon kids t-shirt and meet at the lower park for a final one-mile run followed by the presentation of certificates and awards. Runners and their families are then invited to attend a pool party from 7 – 9 p.m.  The pool party is provided by the Healthy Schools Healthy Communities Grant. A total 190 marathon kids runners participated in the first season, along with five adult coaches. The runners, ranging from pre-kindergarten to seniors, logged over 10,000 miles! If you are unable to attend, certificates and/or awards will be passed out at the beginning of the school year. Any questions email Brandy Harvill at mailto:bharvill@avabears.net.
