Marathon Kids is a national running program designed to motivate kids by utilizing running logs, boost their activity, and introduce them to the joy of running! Nebraska Extension teamed up with Marathon Kids to bring this great program to our state through Nebraska Extension Marathon Kids (NEMK).
Whether you are a youth runner, teacher, or running enthusiast wanting to share your passion, we are excited to help jumpstart long-lasting healthy behaviors!
"Your size and shape don't matter when you run, as long as your mind and your heart and your feet can agree on the goal and work together to get there." - NEMK Runner
"Thank you for bringing this to Nebraska. I am so excited to weave it into the tapestry of whole human health here in west-central Nebraska! I already have the meeting with our school district’s afterschool program scheduled for tomorrow!" - NEMK Coach
