Marathon Kids has been on mission to get kids moving for 23 years, more importantly to create a love of being physically active so that continues into their adult lives. We are an evidence-based running program that works for any kid, at any fitness level. Kids set goals and track their progress on an incremental journey to complete up to four marathons, or 104.8 miles, over the course of a season. They run, or walk, at their own pace a lap at a time, a day at a time, and before they know it they’ve gone farther than they ever dreamed. And for a little extra motivation, they earn fun Nike rewards at completion of each marathon.
You can find the Marathon Kids program in schools, after-school programs, and in homes across the nation. Marathon Kids is simple, fun, and effective!
