General Information

The Beaverton School District is excited to announce its partnership with Marathon Kids; a running club that will be available to your student on Wednesday, November 18, 2020.

WHAT IS MARATHON KIDS?

  • An all inclusive running club
  • Students track miles run to earn Marathons
  • Rewards are available for students when they hit different mile markers

Marathon Kids mission is to get kids moving, one lap at a time, at the pace they choose.  Walk, run, jog those laps until they have earned the goals they have set for themselves. 

WHY MARATHON KIDS?

We all know how that exercise and movement are important for not only our physical health, but also our mental health.  Research shows that incorporating consistent running/walking routines into students' lives, helps them both physically and mentally. No matter the students ability, they can run/walk/jog at their own pace and set their own mileage goals.  This is the perfect activity for students and families to do safely and socially distanced from others, in the time frame that fits each family's schedule. 

HOW WILL THIS WORK DURING CDL?

Students will run/walk/jog and track their own miles at home with their families. Parents will then submit the miles completed on the Marathon Kids website.  Miles will then be approved by the student’s PE teacher. 

In order to have access, parents will receive an email to join the schools Marathon Kids Club. Be sure to click on the link in the email to get connected! 

WHEN DOES IT START?

As soon as you receive your email and you are logged in, you can start running and tracking your students miles!
