Hugo and Cecile Dixon started out in KiDSMARATHON New Zealand age 8 and were involved in their School Run Club at Matakana School, New Zealand.
They both went to Canberra, Australia in April of 2006 to represent KiDSMARATHON New Zealand at the Australian KiDSMARATHON program, visiting schools and running the Final Mile during the Canberra Marathon weekend. Pictures of them with finishers medal.
They have both continued to be active in their XCountry and Track school program through elementary and into high school. Cecile went onto win the final Mile at the Auckland Marathon (picture) and just two weeks ago Hugo finished in 17th place in the Auckland Marathon 1/4 Marathon race.
