Can you complete a marathon before Mo Farah? This is your chance to find out!


Mo Farah has teamed up with Marathon Kids to encourage children to be more active by setting the challenge of running one marathon before he finishes the London Marathon on 22nd April 2018.

You have 8 weeks from 26th February to complete your marathon. You can run both at school and at home.

For schools already delivering marathon kids (link to marathon kids page) you can track your progress by giving every child taking part a personal Kilometre Log. A very special prize from Nike will be awarded to the school with the greatest number of children who complete the marathon. A reminder from Marathon Kids not to forget to continue adding data to you Digital Tracking System too!
