Seven kickoff celebrations, seven finisher medal ceremonies, seven cities. That’s how Marathon Kids celebrates its superstar kids. Schools and districts each host events in their cities, which studies have proven have a lasting positive impact on the kids who participate. It’s also an opportunity for the entire community to rally around our students’ accomplishments as they move toward their goals of living healthier, happier lives!

Each kickoff ceremony marks the official start of the Marathon Kids 26.2 Mile Challenge. We invite all our kids—as well as their teachers, their families, and their communities—to come out and get excited for the upcoming year with a celebratory first lap around the track!

Our finisher medal celebration honors kids who complete a marathon (or more!) during the school year. At this time, our superhero Marathon Kids run their final lap in celebration of their awesome commitment and achievement!

In addition to our stadium events, Marathon Kids is busy year-round presenting at conferences, hosting educational mixers, organizing much-needed fundraisers, conducting school visits, and more. Check out our calendar and find the next event year you!
