mars kidsIn 2024, children will be lining up at the Kids' Martian Marathon starting line to reward themselves for the training they committed to in the weeks prior to the race! School Running Clubs, lunch mileage clubs, soccer teams, boy/girl scout groups all train together to complete their miles! Don't belong to a group training club?  NO PROBLEM!  You can train with your family and sign up on your own!   

Parents, teachers, youth group leaders, adult running clubs...please consider sharing your love of physical fitness with the youth of Michigan!  No experience necessary! For as little as 30 minutes a week you could help guide kids in the right direction and help them stay motivated while they follow a training plan.  Use one provided on the below, or make up your own!
