  • Bike-a-thons & trike-a-thons: Older kids complete miles and younger ones laps around a track. One Tricycle Rodeo in California even had the trikes decked out like steeds, with the tots in full cowboy regalia!
  • Miracle Marathons: Kids log a cumulative 26.2 miles of walking, running, or other exercise over a designated period of time.
