Step-by-Step, Mile-by-Mile® elementary school children finish a full 26.2-mile marathon!

The School Marathon Foundation was started by active Moms in Salina, Kansas, eager to spread their unique and beneficial School Marathon® experience to schools across the nation. With the epidemic of childhood obesity in our country, School Marathon shows kids they can be active and achieve lofty goals in a fun group environment of classmates and family, delivering an Early Start to a Healthy Lifestyle! Milestone Incentives and a big finish line celebration keep kids motivated throughout the 6-week program. With all of the positive mental, emotional, and physical benefits…principals, teachers, and parents are enthusiastically singing the praises of School Marathon!
