Kids Marathon Mile at LEGOLAND
Set For January 21, 2012
Fun Run is Held During the Tri-City Medical Center Carlsbad Marathon Weekend
The Kids Marathon Mile at LEGOLAND® California, a one-mile run/walk, is set for Saturday, Jan. 21, 2012, announced In Motion, Inc., the event organizer. The one-mile, age-staged races will start at 8 a.m. and loop through the family theme park.
Although LEGOLAND is geared for children ages 12 and younger, the non-competitive event is open to people of all ages. “It is a perfect opportunity for moms, dads, siblings and friends to participate in this fun, healthy activity together,” said Christine Adams, chief executive officer of In Motion, Inc.
Every registered child in the Kids Marathon Mile at LEGOLAND is a winner and will receive a shiny finisher’s medal, colorful T-shirt, and a free one-day Child Hopper Ticket to the LEGOLAND California and SEA LIFE™ Carlsbad Aquarium, a $77 value (valid Saturday, 1/21/2012 or Sunday, 1/22/2012 for ages 3 to 12) in addition to one free UltraStar Cinemas child’s admission movie pass and popcorn.
In addition to being a family-friendly event, the Kids Marathon Mile at LEGOLAND helps schools raise much-needed funds through its Run for Your School Program. If there are at least 10 entries from a particular school, the entrants from that school automatically become members of a school team and the school will receive $2.00 for each paid entry.
Held during the Tri-City Medical Center Carlsbad Marathon & Half Marathon race weekend, the Kids Marathon Mile at LEGOLAND also features a Diaper Dash for babies who still travel on all fours and a free family expo with entertainment and fun activities. The Tri-City Medical Center Carlsbad Marathon & Half Marathon are scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 22, 2012.
