Kids Mercedes Marathon

Kids Mercedes Marathon is sponsored by Mercedes Benz and tons of other businesses.  The students work on running the distance of a marathon 26.2 miles here at school or even at home and we keep a record of it each time they run.  We start running in September and run through February until the marathon.  The marathon is on a Saturday in February at Linn Park in downtown Birmingham.  There are kids from all over that come to run their last mile to finish the marathon.  Once they cross that finish line they receive a finisher's medal that looks just like the one the adult marathon runners get in the Mercedes marathon.  
Listed below are the kids that ran the marathon this year from our school and their times that they ran the last mile in as well.
