The Fort4Fitness Kids Marathon is easy to do and fun for all!
The Kids Marathon is designed for kids ages 4-14 and has been created to promote exercise, wellness and healthy lifestyles for kids and their families through a variety of unique training programs and events. We are dedicated to providing safe, fun and high-quality events for athletes of all ages and abilities.
Fort4Fitness operates under a simple premise: the sooner we can instill healthy lifestyles in our kids, the better health they will have later in life. A major contributor to a healthy lifestyle is getting regular exercise.
In 2013, 836 area kids took strides toward a more fit lifestyle while participating in the Fort4Fitness Kids Marathon.
Free Online Training Programs
Fort4Fitness provides a fun and effective way to encourage kids to exercise by providing a free, flexible and practical training program. All that’s needed to begin is an adult registering their child and then you get to choose the program that best fits your child and your family.
The Kids Marathon training programs are designed to make exercise fun and achievable for kids. The program includes:
The program allows your child to set a goal, have the reward of achieving that goal and then coming together in a fun-filled supportive environment in September to celebrate and recognize their success. Our goal is to help children in our community develop a foundation for healthy habits and fitness that will continue for generations to come.
