On race day – Saturday, July 26 – they'll run the final 1K to make it a full marathon (26.2 miles). They'll get to finish on the track at Hayward Field in front of cheering fans, just like those running the Eugene Marathon on the next day. Every kid who tracks and completes the entire marathon distance will earn a Finisher's Certificate, T-shirt, medal and post-race pancake breakfast. Don't want to do the whole marathon? No problem. You can still take part in Saturday's 1K Duck Dash with all of the other kids..
