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 in person. 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!
