Compete in a Marathon without having to run! You can complete a 26 mile "marathon" by participating in many physical activities. We will track your "progress" and you can earn prizes as you pass "Milestones" on your way to 26 miles. This is a great way to encourage a healthy lifestyle and promote physical activity among youth. The Youth Fitness Marathon is co-sponsored by the Lost Dutchman Marathon and Apache Junction Parks & Recreation. The Youth Fitness Marathon will culminate in a day of fun youth fitness activities at Prospector Park on February 14, 2016 (on the day of the Lost Dutchman Marathon).
YFM Game Board-2016 will be out in December 2015! Begin right away to collect your milestone prizes and insure a healthier lifestyle! All participants who complete their game board will win a fitness pack, a free entry into the Lost Dutchman Marathon 2 Mile Fun Run, and get entered in to a raffle for great prizes; electronics, fun fitness stuff or a one year membership to the MGC. If you are interested in participating in the Youth Fitness Marathon, you can pick up a game board at the following locations beginning January 2nd:
