What is Marathon Kids Ireland?

South Dublin County Council along with Fingal County Council and Dublin City Council have organised this 8 week programme targeting 5th & 6th Class students in schools in Fingal and Dublin City.

Students will perform four running sessions each week inching them closer to completing their first marathon as well as learning about the benefits of physical activity.

The finale will see the students running their last mile and completing the marathon at the National Cross Country Course located at the National Sports Campus in Dublin 15.

The Marathon Kids programme has shown to be a truly beneficial and enjoyable activity!

I would encourage all Councils and all Local Sports Partnerships to get the programme up and running in their areas!
