Kids Running America has the unique ability to empower children through our incremental marathon and ultra running programs for school age children. Any child willing to run the marathon distance (26.2 miles) or our ultra distance (100 miles), achieve goals, and begin a lifetime of healthy living is eligible. Both our marathon and ultra programs are perfect for any school, event, PE curriculum, and youth organization nationwide.
