ABOUT The Forrest Gump Challenge is hosted by Cross Country Missions. All Kids Marathon receive an award. All 5k, Half Marathon, Marathon, & 50k runners receive Finisher Medals. Watch the movie over and over and over again while you wait for your friends and family to finish or as a post-race relaxation. Play some ping-pong, or grow a beard while running 1 Mile, 5k, 13.1, 26.2, or 50k!
Come get in the spirit of what it is like to be a runner and just have a blast in the festivities!
The Kids will receive a training plan(and fun coloring page to track training) in increments of 1/4 mile, 1/2 mile, & 1 mile leading up to the race day. The Race will be the last mile of their training, totalling all of the training to a Marathon distance! All Finishers will receive a special award!
