Marathon Kids is a Grant-based program, sponsored by NIKE. The program is for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students at any fitness level. Kids set their goals and track their progress on a journey to complete four marathons, or 104.8 miles, over the course of the running club season. They run, walk, (or skip!) one lap at a time, one day at a time, and before they know it they’ve gone farther than they ever dreamed. They learn how to fuel their bodies so they can run faster, better, longer. And for a little extra motivation, they earn fun Nike rewards at milestones along the way. They have a network of dedicated adults showing them how it’s done, and most importantly, a motivated and inspiring coach supporting them every step of the way.
