Helping Young Runners One Mile At a Time

Through running, we show kids they can achieve more than they ever thought possible.

why we run

Only 1 in 4 children get the daily recommended 60 minutes of physical activity. And, we are delivering the effective programming they need.

As a nonprofit, we believe kids need positive role models who provide opportunities to run and move. We support schools and community organizations with an evidenced-based physical activity program designed to grow self-confident, active kids.

Marathon Kids Connect
