The 13th KiDS ROCK Nashville Presented by the YMCA of Middle Tennessee

by Matthew McAlexander

The 13th KiDS ROCK Nashville Presented by the YMCA of Middle Tennessee took place Sunday, April 27, 2014 at LP Field. After weeks of training, over 6,000 children, grades K-7 ran the “final mile” in their race to become KiDS ROCK marathoners.

Race day is the culmination of a school-based running program designed to tackle childhood obesity through prevention. The non-timed, non-competitive event has become synonymous with introducing the fun of fitness and running to kids at a time when poor nutrition and a widespread lack of exercise threatens the health of an entire generation.

Mayor Karl Dean was at the finish line to congratulation the finishers.
