our program

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

Kids set goals in their Marathon Kids program and track their progress on a journey to complete four marathons, or 104.8 miles, over the course of the season. They run, walk, or jog one lap at a time, one day at a time.

Our methods have been tested and verified. Research shows the Marathon Kids running program effectively jump-starts healthy, long-lasting change. We help kids set and achieve goals, grow in self-confidence, and build relationships through a team experience.

Marathon Kids Connect
