WELCOME TO MARATHON KIDS
THE ALL INCLUSIVE AND SEND SCHOOL FRIENDLY RUNNING PROGRAMME
Marathon Kids is an exciting FREE programme, which gives primary school children the opportunity to run or walk multiple marathons over the school year.
It’s all about children working towards their own personal goals rather than it being a competition. Running a marathon is recognised by everyone as a massive achievement and Marathon Kids breaks this down in a way that makes it possible for everyone.
It’s flexible and sustainable, and works with your existing timetable so you can run your sessions when it suits you. Plus you get an online Digital Tracking System (DTS) to measure and track your running so you know how well you’re performing, and when children reach their milestones. Sign up here for FREE
To help you get started, you’ll have access to loads of cool support tools, and if you want a more hands-on approach, you could always allocate some of your Sports Premium to buy one of our team of Marathon Makers who will set everything up. Starter kits and branded rewards, such as medals and t-shirts are also available from our online shop.
We are proud to have the support of global Marathon Kids Ambassador, Sir Mo Farah:
“I love running, and it’s given me and my family so much,” says Farah. “As a dad, I know how important it is for my children to be active, and I’m honoured to have the chance to inspire kids to run with Marathon Kids.”
Marathon Kids have a better chance of achieving the recommended 30 minutes of daily physical activity in school time. It’s proven that children who have daily bursts of physical activity will perform better and show improvements in behaviour.
We encourage parents/carers to download the KRF Running App so children and their families can achieve the other 30 minutes of physical activity, and ultimately reach the over-all recommended 60 minutes of moderate to physical activity per day.
Marathon Kids can also be used by home schools and SEND schools. If you want to find out more, why not give our friendly team a call on 01926 336628?
