Covenant Kids Run


Fittest School Challenge Results are in!
Results for the 2017 Fittest School Challenge are in! We had a record number of schools compete in this year’s 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 schools that awards winners based upon percentage of participation. Each child that participated in the April 1, 2017 Covenant Kids Run earned one point for their school. We tallied up each school’s respective points and divided 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. More than one school in each county is eligible to win prize money. On to the results……
1. Nature’s Way Montessori           $1,000                                   6. Kingston Elementary           $200
2. Episcopal School of Knoxville       $800                                   7. Steekee Elementary            $200
3. Garden Montessori                       $500                                    8. Sequoyah Elemantary         $200
4. Lanier Elementary                        $400                                    9. Highland Park Elementary   $200
5. Shannondale Elementary             $300                                   10. Loudon Elementary             $200

We will present each school with a plaque and a check before school gets out this spring. Thanks again to Regal Entertainment Group for sponsoring this year’s Fittest School Challenge!

The Covenant Kids Run is a program created to encourage our local children to lead healthy and active lifestyles while participating in an exciting, goal oriented, community event. Those participating will run a total of 25 miles in the time period leading up to the race (March 24, 2018). 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. All logs can be presented upon packet pickup at the Health and Fitness Expo to receive a finisher’s certificate. Packet pick-up will be at the Expo on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at the Knoxville Convention and Exhibition Center (525 Henley St).   Be sure and show up in plenty of time to pick up your child’s packet, browse the expo, and head over to the start line of the 2017 Covenant Kids Run!  All participants will receive a t-shirt (Youth S-XL or Adult S-M), post-race refreshments, and a finishers’ medal.  All finishers’ names will be sent to the Knoxville News Sentinel to be published Monday after the race!
