The New London Recreation Department is proud to offer The Rod Dixons Kid’s Marathon program. This amazing program is a great fun way for kids to get active outside after this long winter we have just experienced. Over 8 weeks the kids will run a total of 26.2 miles in a fun enjoyable manor, with a grand finale Olympic style finish and celebration at Waterford High School. Kids will also earn a Presidential Active Lifestyle Award along with a complementary certificate, T-shirt, and a replica Olympic medal. This program will surely show kids the joys and health benefits of running which they can enjoy for a life time. If you can inform any students ages 7-12 that might be interested in this amazing opportunity to experiencing running in a positive light.
