Regal Entertainment Group to Sponsor the 2017 Fittest School Challenge!
Thanks to a sponsorship by Regal Entertainment Group, we are proud to award $4,000 to area schools through our 2017 Fittest School Challenge.
The Fittest School Challenge is a competition between area elementary schools that awards winners based upon percentage of participation. Each child that participates in the April 1, 2017 Covenant Kids Run earned one point for their school. We will tally up each school’s respective points and divide that number by the total enrollment of that school to determine their participation percentage. We will award prize money to the top ten elementary schools in a ten county radius (Anderson, Blount, Hamblen, Jefferson, Knox, Loudon, Monroe, Roane, Sevier, and Union). More than one school in each county is eligible to win prize money. The breakdown is as follows:

1st –  $1,000                    6th –    $200
2nd – $800                       7th –    $200
3rd –  $500                       8th –    $200
4th –  $400                       9th –    $200
5th –  $300                       10th –  $200

On race day, participants will run a 1 mile course (click here for map), finally completing the marathon distance of 26.2 miles. They have an option to run or walk the 26.2 miles. Our goal is not only to address personal fitness, but to build self esteem and confidence through goal setting and teamwork.Parents and/or teachers are encouraged to help during the process.
