Run and Read

Free Summer Program

This summer, keep both your body and brain active by running or walking 26.2 miles, and reading 26 books. Marathon Kids and Education Connection have teamed up to bring kids a fun summer challenge, Run and Read!

To get started, just fill out the form. Download a free Run and Read log, put it on the fridge, and get going. Before you know it, you’ll have run—and read—a marathon!

Run and Read is a free program presented by Marathon Kids and Education Connection. Marathon Kids offers free programming to get kids moving and Education Connection provides volunteers to get kids reading. Please consider making a donation to support Marathon Kids and Education Connection, so these nonprofits can continue to combat youth inactivity and illiteracy.
