Who Runs The World? You!

To celebrate 25 years of getting kids moving, Marathon Kids is kicking off the 2020-2021 season with We Run the World presented by Academy, a nationwide virtual relay race that will get athletes of all ages across the country running and walking 25,000 miles total—which is just over the circumference of the world! 

Starting September 1st, you can track and donate your miles with FitRankings. Over the next four weeks, you’ll be able to follow along our progress on our Leaderboard below. Until September 30th, get your miles on a walk or run, wherever and whenever it suits your schedule best.

Once we reach the finish line, it will be time to pass the virtual baton back to the kids, and kick off the school year with a big win already under our belts.  So make every mile count, and help us reach our goal!
