ON A MISSION
At Marathon Kids, we believe every kid deserves to lead a happy, healthy, active life. That’s why we’ve made our physical activity app and cloud-based reporting platform—Marathon Kids Connect—completely free for schools and community organizations that want to get kids moving.
Research shows heart-pumping exercise helps kids feel better, relieves stress, depression, and anxiety, and improves sleep. Now, more than ever, kids need the mental health benefits of regular walking and running.
If you are a PE or classroom teacher—
You can be an inspiring coach! Marathon Kids provides everything you need to get your students goal-setting, grit-building, and mile-crushing, all year long.
If you are a parent—
Tell your child’s teachers about Marathon Kids! They can bring fun, motivational physical activity programming to your child’s school, for free.
If you want to inspire kids—
Join us as We Run the World together!
In 25 years, Marathon Kids has gotten 2.5 million kids moving. As we launch our 25th anniversary season, we invite you to join us in running around the world—25,000 miles! Register for We Run the World presented by Academy Sports + Outdoors and every mile you walk or run in September will count towards our goal. At the end of the month, we’ll pass the baton to this year’s Marathon Kids to set their big goals for the school year!
