Marathon Kids is a national running program designed to motivate kids by utilizing running logs, boost their activity, and introduce them to the joy of running! The goal for the program is for youth and their families to become more active and gain confidence through running. Whether the participants run, walk, or even skip – a mile is a mile, and being physically active is so good for their health.
