OUR KIDS RUN MARATHONS. JOIN US!
Marathon Kids UK inspires the next generation to become physically active.
We believe that running has the power to show kids they can achieve more than they ever dreamed possible!
The Marathon Kids UK programme and accompanying tracking systems encourages kids to set goals and run distances of multiple marathons over the course of an academic year.
One kilometre at a time, our Marathon Kids unlock their potential, learning grit, determination, and the feeling of pure joy that comes from crushing your goals — mentally as well as physically.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED WITH MARATHON KIDS?
"Sport is really important for the physical and mental wellbeing of children. It gives them the platform to be creative, to develop social skills, to develop physically as well as mentally, and also develop resilience and overcome adversity through challenges in sport"
"Marathon Kids is great, a superb idea to bring young people together, getting them involved, getting them fit, but it’s also about our needs at the moment. Health and well-being is a major problem"
"I love running, and it’s given me and my family so much. As a Dad, I know how important it is for my children to be active, and I’m honoured to have the chance to inspire kids to run with Marathon Kids"
