How do I get the Marathon Kids Program at my Child’s School?

We recommend reaching out to your child's PE teacher, classroom teacher, PTA/PTO president, or principal. Tell them about Marathon Kids Connect and encourage them to create a free account as a coach and register your child’s class, grade, or even the entire student body!

How can I get my family moving?

We believe connecting with our kids is a critical part of parenting. It can be easier for kids to open up to their parents when they’re engaged in an activity together. We invite you to join our popular family program, Walk and Talk, or check out our list of free resources for a range of games and activities.

Walk and Talk

Walk a mile with your child and talk about a new topic each day. We provide a special log to track your mileage, along with 26 conversation starter cards—one for each mile.

Free Resources

For more fun ways to inspire physical activity at home, check out our library of free resources for families.
