We are excited to announce that our Marathon Kids Ambassador, Mo Farah, has teamed up with us to inspire children to get moving by setting the challenge of running 1 Marathon before he finishes running the London Marathon on 22.04.18.
So here’s the challenge: From Monday 26th February 2018 you’ve got 8 weeks to complete the challenge of running a marathon. So it’s time to lace up and get moving!
Download your Beat Mo Challenge poster here to display at school, at your local Kids Run Free event or at home to inspire children to take part. We will send you motivational emails and social media posts to keep you running through this challenge.
COUNTDOWN TO MO’S MARATHON CHALLENGE 22.04.18
HOW TO TRACK YOUR MARATHON
SCHOOLS ALREADY DELIVERING MARATHON KIDS
The ideal way to track your marathon is to give every child a personal Kilometre Log which you can download here. Children can then run in school or at home and track their own progress. The school with the most amount of kids who run 1 marathon will be awarded with a very special prize from our partners Nike.
To take part in the challenge please get the kids to complete their own Kilometre Logs so we can track the total at the end but don’t forget to carry on adding data to your DTS (Digital Tracking System). There’s still plenty of time left this academic year, so keep on inputting all of your amazing achievements to see your overall progress.
PARENTS REGISTERING A CHILD
All you need to do is download our KRF Running App here.
It’s the perfect way to keep track of your marathon and seeing those kilometres building up over the 8 week challenge is a great way to keep everyone motivated. So if you or your school think you’ve got what it takes to Beat Mo to the finish line in 8 weeks, why not sign up today and start moving!
