The Mill Creek Elementary PTO, Sunset Elementary PTO and Nolensville Elementary PTO have joined together to organize the First Annual Nolensville Community Kids Marathon from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on April 21.
The race will begin in the Mill Creek Elementary Parking lot and end on Nolensville High School track. The idea is that students will train with runners at their own school to run 25.2 miles before the event. The last mile will be run at the Mill Creek/Nolensville High School campus, where each student will complete the entire 26.2 mile marathon. Once they cross the finish line, each runner will receive their own Nolensville Community Kids Marathon finishing medal.
“We have over 770 students participating and have invited the community out to cheer them on and enjoy a fun evening of food trucks, a dunk tank, free face painting, a balloon artist, music, and more,” said Allyson Fitzsimons, Mill Creek Elementary PTO Communications Chair. “We will start at MCES and end on the NHS track. We would like to invite you out to our event to see our students run and how our wonderful Nolensville community supports our schools.”
Proceeds from the event will go to all three school PTOs for the benefit of each school.
Students do not have to be in a running club to participate. The 25.2 miles will be on the honor system.
Parents or Guardians are welcome to run with their child and do not need to register in order to do so. You will be required to wear the duplicate bib if your child is K-1st Grades. Parents with children are asked to start to the back or sides to allow other children right of way. Pets and strollers are not allowed.
This event will take place rain or shine.
