Kids’ Marathon is an exciting project from children’s charity Kids Run Free. The project aims to give primary school children the opportunity to complete a marathon throughout the course of the school year by running laps of a course once or twice a week during their lunch break. The concept is based on personal achievement rather than competition - this encourages all children, regardless of fitness ability to take part by running as much or as little as they choose.
How much does it cost?
Kids’ Marathon is FREE with the option to purchase the Kids’ Marathon Starter Pack.
How it works
Kids’ Marathon runs from September to May with launch dates any time between September and January; however, we recommend a start date as early in the academic year as possible to increase the chance of children achieving the full distance.
Prior to the agreed launch date it is the school’s responsibility to inform parents/guardians of the project (they will also need to ensure children bring suitable shoes to run in).
