The MARATHON KIDS UK app is a great way for families to run together and reach marathon distances over several running sessions.

Is your child running Marathon Kids UK at their school? If so, make sure to register for the app using the same email that was added to the schools DTS (Digital Tracking System). You will then be able to connect to your child’s profile on their schools DTS which will enable you to see what they run in and out of school.
