our program

Marathon Kids is for all kids, at any fitness level.

Our programming is a volunteer-led coaching model that combines award-winning technology and evidence-based practices to build a structured physical education program. Kids set goals in their Marathon Kids program and our coaches track their progress to run, jog, walk or move the equivalent of four (or more!) marathons over the course of a season.

Our methods have been tested and verified. Research shows the Marathon Kids running program effectively jump-starts healthy, long-lasting change. And it's free!

Marathon Kids Connect

A free cloud-based platform to help coaches and kids measure and celebrate their progress every step of the way. Marathon Kids Connect includes a scanning app for distance tracking, plus a web dashboard where coaches can easily run reports, manage rosters, engage with parents, and celebrate achievements. Runners and parents have their own personal dashboards too!
