The program runs from March-May giving young people (Grades 1-8) the opportunity to run a marathon in a novel way.  For those of you who aren’t familiar, participants will complete 40km by walking, running, or wheeling over 10 weeks. This training will lead them to the Saskatchewan Marathon race day — Sunday, May 27, 2018 – when all the participants will come together to cap off their hard work with a fun 2.2K on part of the marathon course.  Throughout the program, the young athletes will learn about an active lifestyle, how they can maintain an active program to promote health and the importance of having personal goals. Creating these goals is what the Marafun is all about, providing them with skills to build a strong character that they can take into all facets of their life. This program is very exciting for participants and leaves them feeling very proud of their accomplishments.We invite you to take part in this amazing program.  All it requires is a leader and young participants.  The leader gets children to run/walk/wheel a specific number of kilometres per week (we have a program that you can follow) and coordinates attendance to the Saskatchewan Marathon.  We have a manual that each leader can download from the Marafun website.  The fee is $15 fee for each student and includes a t-shirt, a medal and a trip to the food tent on race day, along with incentives to complete the program and build a lifelong love of being physically active.  What next?
