Marathon Kids @ Emscote
Marathon Kids inspires the next generation to become physically active. We believe that running has the power to show every pupil at Emscote they can achieve more than ever, improving their fitness and mental health all in one action!
The Marathon Kids UK programme and tracking system encourages our children to set goals and run distances of 10km all the way up to multiple marathons over the course of each academic year.
Marathon Kids sessions run as part of our PE lesson warm ups, a well-deserved brain movement break at any point of the day and at any playtime and lunchtime.
One kilometre at a time, following the coloured feet track around the outside of our playground, we aim for the children to unlock their potential; learning resilience, determination, and the feeling of pure joy that comes from achieving your goals — mentally as well as physically!
