Kids Marathon - Get involved!

The West Australian Marathon Club joined the national Kids Marathon Series in 2008. It has been a great success and we are looking forward to the Perth Kids Marathon continuing to grow bigger and bigger each year.


It has a unique format that allows kids, kindergarten through high school to run a marathon... one kilometre at a time.


It will be held in conjunction with the annual Perth Marathon on Sunday 17 June, 2018. All children are encouraged to commence a training program in April/May/June and start logging their kilometres.


The aim is to run the first 40km of the marathon distance over a number of weeks in the child’s own time, then on marathon day complete the final 2.195km at the 2017 Perth Marathon.


This is a great opportunity for children of school age to start an exercise program that will continue over a number of weeks and culminate in the completion of a “marathon”.
