Everyone runs on Race Day. But if you are interested in more than the 1.2 mile race day fun run, we also offer families 9-week and 4-week race programs that add up to 26.2 miles.

Track performance and make running a part of your lifestyle. Use these to manage your own race program before showing up for the final 1.2 mile leg or Homestretch on race-day – a fun run that must be purchased. Kids log their miles and on race-day they will complete the last 1.2 Miles or .5 Miles. Once across the finish line, they receive their own The Louisiana Kids Marathon finishing medal.

Kids do not have to complete the whole program to run on January 14th. Our goal is to encourage healthy and active lifestyles. Even if you hear about the kids 1.2 mile fun run at the last minute, come on out, we’d love to see you!

 


HOW-TO FOR PARENTS

1st // SIGN UP:

MULTI-WEEK 30 MIN = 1 MILE PROGRAM

Start Anytime and Track Activity Each Day to Equal 25 Miles and then Run 1.2 Miles on Race-Day

Promoting an active lifestle comes first. Running as a part of that lifestyle comes with time. No need to push a multi-week running program on a kid when they just want to play. Use our ACTIVITY BOOK pages and the our 30 MIN = 1 MILE TRACKING MAP to accumulate 25 “miles” before race-day. Then run 1.2 Miles on Race-Day.

Run with your school by selecting the name during online registration or run as an individual.

THE ADVOCATE, a daily morning newspaper published by Capital City Press, and its journalistic ancestors have been a vital force in Louisiana’s capital city and the surrounding communities for more than 160 years.

An Acadiana edition with news pertaining to Lafayette and the parishes of Acadiana is published daily except Sunday. In 2012, a New Orleans edition was started and is published daily. An Ascension section and Livingston-Tangipahoa section is published each Thursday with news on the faces and places in those areas.

Dathel and John Georges purchased The Advocate, Louisiana’s largest daily print newspaper on April 30, 2013. The Advocate, based in Baton Rouge and first published as a weekly in 1842, has an average daily circulation of 100,000 and serves Baton Rouge, Lafayette, New Orleans and surrounding communities in South Louisiana.

John looks forward to continuing the tradition of leadership and appreciation for the people of Louisiana that his predecessors, the Manship family, helped to establish. The Georges family plans to continue to provide daily news via print and digital to readers in Baton Rouge, Lafayette, New Orleans, and surrounding areas.
