The youth portion of Atlanta's Marathon Weekend will show kids what it means to be part of a big city marathon. Held on the same weekend as the 2021 Atlanta's Marathon Weekend, this race gives kids ages 14 & under the chance to get out, get active, and get acquainted with running as they finish on the infield at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Participants can also join us in the Virtual Publix Atlanta Kids Marathon option.

With the event moving to Atlanta Motor Speedway, those in the mile will get to run one lap of the track. It is 1.3 miles or 2.1K in length. In order to help maintain proper social distancing the race can be completed either Saturday or Sunday. The 1.3 mile race will have several start times available on Saturday, February 27 and Sunday, February 28 with the dash times available both days as well. If virtual is your preferred option, that too is available.
