Marion Mile children’s running program returns June 28

Jun 20, 2022

MARION — The 20th annual Marion Mile summer running series for children starts Tuesday, June 28 at 6 p.m. at Tabor Academy.  

This is a six-week series open to children ages 14 and under. The event takes place each Tuesday evening on the Tabor Academy turf fields accessible via Spring Street.

Families should arrive by 5:30 p.m., especially on the first week that a child runs, to finalize registration and pick up race numbers. 

There will be two races each week with the older group of 7 to 14 year-olds running the two lap one-mile circuit first. The second group of younger runners will run a one loop half-mile circuit immediately afterwards. 

All runners will be finished by 7 p.m.

There will be medals for all at the end of the summer. T-shirts will be provided to all runners, courtesy of race sponsor Wareham Pediatrics.

More information about the event is posted on the Facebook page “MarionMile.”
