Marathonkids is an 8-week programme promoting exercise to 5th and 6th class students in Fingal and South Dublin County Councils. During the course of the programme students will:
- Take part to four running sessions per week for eight weeks
- run 26.2 miles
- learn about the benefits of exercising
- run the last mile at Morton Stadium in Santry
But there are no better words to introduce the program than those from Marathonkids ambassador and former Olympian and 400m European Champion David Gillick.
