Marathon Kids running clubs host Kickoff Ceremonies and Finisher Celebrations throughout the year to mark the beginning and end of their running club seasons. Studies have proven that these events have a lasting positive impact on the kids who participate. These events are incredible opportunities for the entire community to rally around their Marathon Kids as they move toward their goals of living happier, healthier lives. Parents, check out the calendar below for more information on your running club's events, or reach out to your Coach for details!

Our 2015 National Kickoff Ceremony was in Austin, Texas on October 17th, 2015. This event honored and motivated kids everywhere as they set their goal of 104.8 miles.

On April 9th, 2016, we are hosting our inaugural Marathon Kids LA Miler at Miguel Contreras Learning Complex in Los Angeles, California. Marathon Kids will participate in a 1-mile run while Coaches, volunteers and families cheer them on along the course. Runners will have the opportunity to show all the hard work they've put into their school running club, celebrate how far they've come and commit to a summer full of activity.

In addition to Marathon Kids running club events, Marathon Kids staff is busy year-round presenting at conferences, hosting educational mixers, conducting site visits, and more. Check out our calendar and find the next event near you!
