Start a Run Club

Marathon Kids is a research-driven youth running program that challenges kids to run the distance of 1, 2, 3 or 4 marathons over the course of their season. We keep kids motivated to run farther than they ever have before by giving them premium tracking tools and exclusive Nike incentives which are unlocked when runners reach their goal.


Who Can Start a Run Club?

Marathon Kids starts with a dedicated coach. This can be a PE teacher, classroom teacher, parent, principal, or anyone with a passion for keeping kids physically active and focused on reaching goals.


How Much Does it Cost?

The cost is only $15 per runner for the entire season! You get:
