The Publix Atlanta Kids Marathon will show kids what it means to be part of a big city marathon. Held on the same day as the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Marathon, this race gives kids ages 14 & under the chance to get out, get active, and get acquainted with running as they finish in the same area as the 2020 Olympic Team Trials - Marathon.

Kids ages 6 -14 can run the Mile and kids 6 & under can run the Dash

All participants will receive a T-shirt and a finisher's medal.

Awards will be given to the top three boys and girls in each age group for the Mile and to the three Kilometer Kids teams with the fastest average time. Teams (non-profit) will also compete for up to $2000 in grant money by bringing the most participants.

Atlanta Track Club events are held rain or shine. However, the threat of lightning or other severe weather in the vicinity of the event may result in a delay or cancellation. For full details on our event policies, including weather, refunds and cancellations, click here.
