MaraFun PROGRAM OUTLINE

The MaraFun program gives young people the opportunity to run a marathon in a novel way. Participants complete 42.2 km by walking, running, or wheeling over 6 or 10 weeks. This training will lead them to their community race day where they cap off their hard work with a fun 2.2km run. This program is geared to children ages 5 – 13, but all registered must be 6 years old by community race day.

Throughout the program, the young athletes learn about active lifestyles, how to maintain a program to promote health, and the importance of having personal goals. Creating these goals is what the MaraFun is all about; providing skills to build strong character that they can take into all facets of their life. This program is exciting for participants and leaves them feeling proud of their accomplishments.

The 2021 Virtual MaraFun program has two options:

  1. 10-Week Program runs from March 15 – May 21
