Launch of Marathon Kids

On Monday 8th October we launched Marathon Kids. Kids Run Free is a national children’s charity helping kids to become healthier, happier and more confident through running. They provide running opportunities for toddlers to teens in parks and other green spaces as well as our amazing Marathon Kids UK Schools programme. Kids Run Free are so excited that your child’s school is taking part in Marathon Kids with the goal to run/walk regularly and achieve up to four marathons over the academic year, they’ll make you proud! The programme is based on research leading to their 5 pillars: goal setting, tracking, rewarding, celebrating and role modelling. They have provided us with a Digital Tracking System (DTS), all children are added onto this system allowing the school to track and measure all progress and participation. We have had an excellent response to the running/walking and everyone is enjoying their time outside in the fresh air. Let's get running!
