Marathon Kids UK
Who we are
Marathon Kids UK, a programme of Kids Run Free is a charity with the mission of creating fun, sustainable running opportunities for toddlers through to teens, igniting their passion for sport and physical activity and allowing them to become healthier, happier, more confident children.
Our park events are family occasions, we encourage parents to come along with their children, and make use of the recreational facilities in their neighbourhood.
We inspire children of all abilities to become interested in sport, exercise, and competition from a young age.
We believe that adopting an active lifestyle at an early age is key to a healthy childhood and lasting personal fitness.
BY using public parks and school playing fields as locations for our events, we are taking advantage of existing facilities and making better use of them safely.
Our schools programme gives school children the opportunity to complete marathons throughout the course of the school year. The concept is based on personal achievement rather than competition - this encourages all children, regardless of fitness ability to take part by running as much or as little as they choose.
At Marathon Kids UK, we are on a mission to get kids' moving!
