The Publix Atlanta Kids Marathon will show kids what it means to be part of a big city marathon. Held on the same weekend as the 2021 Publix Atlanta 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 Publix Atlanta Marathon.

With the Publix Atlanta Marathon moving to Atlanta Motor Speedway the kids will now get to run one lap of the famous speedway. It is 1.5 miles or 2.4K in length. In order to help maintain proper social distancing the race can be completed throughout the week at a time most convenient for you. The 1.5 mile race will have start times every 30 minutes on Saturday, February 27 and every 60 minutes on Sunday, February 28.

Participant Instructions can be found here closer to event day.

Kids ages 6 -14 can run the 1.5 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 1.5 mile race.
