Marathon Kids

Grove Primary School has signed up for Marathon Kids!


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


The programme emphasises personal achievement. It aims to inspire and empower children of all fitness levels to set and achieve goals. Running is free, full of health benefits, and requires little to no equipment. And running a marathon is recognised by all as a huge achievement. Kids Run Free takes this remarkable achievement, and by using the Marathon Kids programme, breaks it down in a way that encourages children of any fitness ability to set and reach personal goals.


As a school, we have created routes around the playground and on the field (for when the weather improves) that the children can walk or run around to add to their marathon goals. The children's kilometres will be tracked on a Digital Tracking System (only if you have signed and returned the consent form) and certificated given to the children when they complete their marathons.
