It is our belief that most kids want to aim for something, to be able to achieve a specific goal. We see it in academic subjects, music, and the arts when children are rightly congratulated for their accomplished feats. We also want to do this in sport – but it’s not just about being the best, it’s about every child’s unique journey with Marathon Kids UK, and we love celebrating the success each of them has.

Helping kids to know that physical activity is part of their being, as much as learning in the classroom is. The physical learning about your body and what it can do is just as important. We softly instil a life skill to help them to be their best.

The global pandemic has exacerbated the need for a renewed focus on health and well-being, especially for kids. We are here to help provide that focus.


We will

  • Increase the mental and social well-being of young people
  • Tackle childhood obesity
  • Inspire the next generation to love being physical active
  • Work with the children and families from areas of deprivation who need us most


We believe that 

  • There should be fun physical activity that caters to all ages and abilities
  • Marathon Kids UK will become the leader in delivering physical activity for young people
  • Now is the time to increase mental, physical and social well-being in young people
  • We can create greater impact and awareness of healthy living in areas of deprivation
