MARATHON KIDS UK in schools_
TERM TIME TRACKERS
Marathon Kids UK in schools is an active mile programme designed to get more students moving and earning rewards on their way to becoming healthier and happier.
Led by an army of enthusiastic teachers, pupils are encouraged to walk/run/skip and hop their way to four marathons through regular increments in an academic year. Each session, pupils clock up the kilometres by completing laps of the school playground or sports field and record the distances on our Digital Tracking System (DTS). Sessions are flexible and adjustable based on the school and teachers’ schedules. We know that tracking pupils’ progress acts as the perfect motivator and that schools use this data for Ofsted, governing board meetings and highlighting to parents how amazing their children are.
At the end of each academic year, Marathon Kids UK hosts the annual Marathon Kids UK Awards, with teachers nominating children and support staff for one of the five coveted awards.
