KiDSMARATHON has been successfully incorporated into running events across the country. Our partnering events proudly host the grand finale of the 8 week program!

Kids complete their "marathon" in grand fashion, by running the last mile on the race course itself, in front of hundreds (sometimes thousands!) of cheering spectators.   Imagine the feeling!   It is a great finale to the program, and the kids receive the recognition they deserve as well as a fantastic memory. Below is a list of some of our partnering events.
