FARGO-The YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties is starting the Final Mile Kid's Marathon Club to get kids active and interested in the sport of running. Participants in the club will complete 25.2 of the 26.2 miles prior to the Fargo Marathon Youth 1 Mile Run on May 19, then complete the final mile together on the day of the event.

The club will meet at 5:15 p.m. on Mondays each week to talk about running form, healthy food choices and other running topics. Participants will also complete one to two miles of their 25.2 miles every Monday and can record any remaining miles throughout the week to make sure they have 25.2 miles before the Fargo Marathon.

The Y will host a kick-off event for the club from 5:15 to 6 p.m. March 14 at the Fercho Y, 400 1st Ave. S., Fargo. The event is free and refreshments will be served. Those attending can learn more about the program and will be able to register.

The registration fee for the club is $25 for Y members and $35 for non-members. The fee does not include registration for the Fargo Marathon One Mile Youth Run. Participants must register for that event separately.
