This year students are challenged to conquer 104.8 miles, little by little, day by day with the Marathon Kids Program. All physical activity counts: running, walking, and any kind of heart-pumping activity.  

You’ve been invited by your school to follow your child’s journey and submit miles from home. Parents play a key role in helping their child reach 60 minutes of physical activity every day. 

Step 1: Create your account. 

  • Check your email for your invitation to follow your child’s progress. (  
  • If you can’t find it, email the PE teacher to resend the invite. 
  • Create your account by clicking the START HERE button from your email.  
  • Verify your account by checking your email. Click ACTIVATE
  • Login to your Marathon Kids account to claim your child. 
  • Select your child’s name(s) on the left-hand side of your screen.  

Step 2: Help your child go farther! Submit miles and minutes to the Coach. 

The coach will receive notifications and approve miles submitted by parents. 

  • Click on the “Log Miles” icon on the bottom of your screen.
