Seven Kick Off Ceremonies, seven Finisher Medal Celebrations, seven cities. That’s how Marathon Kids celebrates their superstar kids. Schools and districts each host events in their cities, which studies prove have a lasting positive impact on the kids who participate. It’s also an opportunity for the entire community to rally around our children’s accomplishments as they move toward their goals of living happier, healthier lifestyles!

Each Kick Off Ceremony marks the official start of the Marathon Kids’ 26.2 Mile Challenge. We invite all of the children—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 near you!
