KROC is an exciting training program, in 114 Orange County schools and agencies in 2016, provided by the OC Marathon Foundation designed to help children in Orange County become more physically fit through the encouragement of healthy habits to combat the onset of childhood obesity. KROC certified coaches lead children through dynamic games to improve speed, agility, flexibility, and hand/eye coordination. Over the course of 10 – 12 weeks, students at participating schools will accumulate more than 25-miles of exercise through the training program and will be prepared to finish their own “marathon” by completing the “Final Mile” at the Kids Run the OC on Saturday, April 30 during the U.S. Bank OC Marathon event weekend.
In 2015, KROC attracted more than 6,200 participants from more than 90 schools and agencies in 18 Orange County school districts making it one of the largest youth events in the country. Now in 2016 the program continues to grow with more than 7,500 children registered for the “final Mile” and thousands more utilizing the program in their participating schools.
