Our mission is to create a life-long commitment to good health and fitness habits in children at risk of obesity-related health problems. Our program educates, empowers, and inspires 7-12 year old children to become and stay fit.

KiDSMARATHON is a 8-10 week "In School" running & nutrition education program that enables KiDS to complete a full marathon (26.2 miles) by running approximately 3 miles per week.  Throughout the program, KiDS learn the value of good exercise and nutrition habits for healthy living and, best of all, they have fun! The program is completed in grand fashion as each child finishes the "Final Mile" of their marathon distance in front of hundreds (often thousands!) of cheering fans, friends, and family at one of our Partnering Events.

The KiDSMARATHON Mission, is to 'Inspire' and 'Empower' KiDS all year round with a life long commitment to Activity, encourage Fitness habits and Healthy Food choices, especially in those at risk to obesity related health issues, and to 'Achieve' individual success during their 40 week "In School" year with KiDS XCountry Running and the KiDS One Mile Challenge.
