A FULLY INCLUSIVE AND S.E.N.D. SCHOOL FRIENDLY PROGRAMME

Marathon Kids is an exciting programme from the charity Kids Run Free, giving primary school children the opportunity to run or walk the distance of up to four marathons throughout the school year.

SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE

Marathon Kids is simple and effective with a 95% participation rate achieved over the past three academic years. Kids run/walk laps of a playground or sports field at school. All laps are recorded by collecting an elastic band per lap, until the number of laps equals the distance of a marathon. Children are inspired to run/walk up to four marathons per school year and all of their personal achievements are celebrated.

WHY IT WORKS

Kids Run Free took a scientific approach to the development of the Marathon Kids programme.

Not only did Kids Run Free conduct their own measurement & evaluation throughout the course of the programme, but Marathon Kids have also partnered with Loughborough University, to research the implementation, and Marathon Kids US to develop a programme that is sustainable and really works.

THE APPROACH IS BASED ON THE MARATHON KIDS FIVE PILLARS

Goal setting – We encourage you to allow kids to set their own goals and work hard for them

Tracking – Kids Run Free provides a Digital Tracking System (DTS) allowing you to track and measure all participants progress and participation in real time with no need to send back data to us

Role-modelling – Running with your kids is proven to increase participation and enjoyment. Kids Run Free will support you to become a Marathon Kid too

Celebrating – We will help you to celebrate all kids achievements right from the launch event to the final lap

Rewards – Kids Run Free have all the incentives you need to reward your Marathon Kids and keep them motivated toward achieving their goals
