Welcome to the 2010 WELS Kids Marathon

Welcome to the 2010 WELS Kids Marathon.

Almost everyone is signed up, logs have been sent out to participants and the running and reading has begun!!! We are bigger and better than ever (well, ever only means last year). Last year we had 197 kids signed up and running while this year we are closing in on 400. Registrations are being entered into the database and emails added to the yahoo email account for updates throughout the summer. Plans are now switching to finding sponsors, final event preparations and well as getting in the miles and books.

I know there are lots of questions out there that need to be answered. Our email is open for all questions so please feel free to drop us a note and ask away at Some of your questions may be have answers already in the Frequently Asked Questions portion of the site. The link can be found on the right side of this website. Also there is a link to the course map for the final mile and direction maps to our final event on August 28th.

I know there has been inquiry about how to get a new log or a second log. We are working on getting a link to the log so you can print it out on your own as many as you need. This should be up soon.

Also, stay tuned for updates on group runs being planned at various different locations around the area. I will try to provide dates, times, locations, and maps for these events. Please come and join others as they and you accomplish 26.2 miles over the summer. I know of "fun runs" being held in Muskego as well as South Milwaukee.

Now go and have some fun this summer reading and running. Keep your mind active and well as your body. Be safe out on the roads and keep all eyes open to cars and other vehicle. Stay hydrated in the heat and warm if it cools off. But most of all, have fun!
