The Kids Marathon encourages children to live a healthy lifestyle, while teaching important lessons from the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, and the Oklahoma Standard. It is a Run to Remember and a race to show that we can each make a difference in this world.
Participants of the Kids Marathon will log 25 miles from now until race day. On race day, participants will complete their Marathon by running or walking the last 1.2 miles on the official course. We recommend 8-10 weeks minimum to properly train runners and implement the free Kids Marathon curriculum provided by the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum – so start early!
The Kids Marathon invites K-6 schools to participate in the school group program. The program spans 16 weeks and teaches the story of Why We Run – while building skills for healthy living.
The Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon is the largest fundraiser for the privately owned and operated Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum. As an additional benefit to running in any of the races, each participant will receive 1 free admission to the Museum. You can redeem this by bringing your bib, medal or event shirt to the Museum ticket counter any day after the race!
