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.
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.
Facilities: Portable restrooms will be located at the park.
Water Stations: Water will be provided at the finish line.
