Governor’s Cup Kid’s Marathon

The Governor’s Cup Kid’s Marathon

Governor’s Cup race officials are working on bringing the Kids Marathon training program back in 2022. We will post updates as we finalize details.

Traditionally, kids in grades K-5 at participating schools log 120 minutes of running/walking during a six-week training period and run/walk a 1-mile lap at 6:30 p.m. the Friday before Governor’s Cup race day on Saturday.

This non-competitive, non-timed event is about having fun and making it to the finish line.

Every Kid’s Marathon training program participant will be rewarded with tokens for meeting time goals and a T-shirt for completing the training program, free of charge. Those who participate in the final event will also earn a finisher’s medal. Children from non-participating schools will not receive a training program T-shirt, but are invited to participate in the non-timed lap free of charge and will receive a finisher’s medal.



Participating Schools

2019 participating schools included Broadwater, Central, Four Georgians, Hawthorne, Jefferson, Kessler, Rossiter, Smith, Warren, St. Andrew, Boulder, Clancy, Deer Lodge, Radley, Montana City, Townsend and Helena Home School.
