Leicester (Knighton) Marathon Kids UK meet in the park on the grass coming from the cark off Palmerston Way, follow the path until you are past the wooded area
Search for the postcode LE2 3RE
When you arrive at the park look for the Marathon Kids UK banners and flags
Car parking is available at the Palmerston Way entrance, but the best way to reach the park is on foot, by bus or bicycle via the national cycle network routes 6, 63 and 77
Download the Free MARATHON KIDS UK App and simply turn up ready to have some fun!
The MARATHON KIDS UK App is a great way for families to run together and reach marathon distances over a number of running sessions. If your child is running Marathon Kids UK at their school and you gave permission for your email to be added to the schools online tracking system you will be able to connect our app with the schools platform. This will allow you to see what your child has run at school and the school will see any distance they run at a Marathon Kids UK in the park event.
