    Fittest School Challenge

    The Covenant Kids Run Fittest School Challenge provides schools with training and exercise tools tailored specifically for children. Students train for a total of 25.2 miles, tracking their progress in a logbook, before the final race in the spring. On race day, students complete the one-mile Covenant Kids Run to raise their total mileage to 26.2, the distance of a full marathon.

    “By providing some friendly competition between schools, the Fittest School Challenge is a great chance for kids to get excited about exercising while focusing on a common goal of achieving the title of Fittest School,” said Beth LaFontaine of Covenant Health. “The goal of the challenge and the Covenant Kids Run is for East Tennessee youth to learn fitness skills at an early age that they can use to maintain a healthy lifestyle for the rest of their lives.”
