RUN, RECORD, RETURN
The Marathon Kids UK Digital Tracking System (DTS) and app have been designed and developed so young athletes, parents, teachers and volunteers can easily log how far they’ve run or travelled in any given session.
Children receive wristbands for every lap they’ve completed of the course – when the session is over, each child tells the Marathon Kids UK Champion (teacher, parent or volunteer) how many bands they’ve earned, and that information is uploaded into the DTS or Marathon Kids UK app.
By doing this, children can see what they’ve achieved on any particular day, and it serves as a great resource for Marathon Kids UK Champions to track progress. We also believe it’s a vital asset for schools to talk about, much in the same way their academic prowess is saluted to parents.
At Marathon Kids UK in parks events, parents are invited to download the Marathon Kids UK app to upload and track the distance their child runs.
The DTS is for teachers to track and reward pupils who run the Marathon Kids UK in schools programme.
