“Children have been excited about running and taking part in physical exercise, not just the so called 'sporty' kids but a range of different children and abilities.” Pete Hawkins, St. Pauls C of E Primary School, Leamington Spa

“Children have exercised a lot more since the marathon has started. Some children, who don’t usually like to take part in different sports, and who don’t usually enjoy PE, have really taken to the Kids’ Marathon and since it has started it has become one of their main ways of exercise.” Roberto Flint, Hillstone Primary School, Birmingham

For statistical evidence of the positive impact of their Marathon Kids programme, Kids Run Free has engaged researchers from the renowned School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences at Loughborough University to conduct independent research into the programme. The results will be published in July 2017.
