ROANOKE, Va. -

It's time for kids to lace up their sneakers for the YMCA Kids Marathon.

The race is in conjunction with the Blue Ridge Marathon on April 26.

Kids complete 25.2 miles on their own from now until race day. It doesn't have to be running, either.

They can walk, jump, swim, dance, or do any physical activity.

On April 26, participants will gather to run the final mile through downtown Roanoke.
