Marathon Challenge 2023

Marathon Challenge 2021

We are delighted to announce details of our exciting Marathon Challenge 2023 for schools and groups. This challenge is perfect to run in your school or club to motvate children to keep active and enjoy running. In the last four years, we've had over 20,000 children involved and we would be delighted to help you organise a challenge for your school/group.

The  challenge is a straightforward but motivating concept - run the distance equivalent to a marathon, not in one go but over a period of time.

We provide you with  everything you need to run the challenge including:

  • an easy to use online tracking system
  • a downloable distance tracker for each pupil
  • a template letter to share with parents
  • a downloadable certificate which can be personalised with each child's name
  • fantastic, high quality personalised medals.
Marathon Challenge 2020
Elm Grove Primary School are just one of our schools signed up this year!

Costs start at just £2.20 (+VAT) per person and include all of the above. We also have alternative medals available for just £1.99 (+VAT) each  - scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Parents can pay for their child to take part through directing them to a specially created link on our website or,  alternatively,  if you would like to use your Sports Premium or school funding you can simply let us know how many children are taking part and we invoice you directly. Our challenges are also a perfect way to raise money for your school. Great for PTA fundraising! Contact us for more information on how this could work.

This personalised medal shown above comes with a plain coloured  ribbon of your choice and the medal can have any choice of colour and text, matching that of your school or group.

Want your child to complete a half marathon instead? No problem! We can completely personalise the challenge and medal for you so please let us know if you have a particular idea.

Fancy Stickers?

Many of our schools decide to reward stickers to each participant as they progress through the challenge. There are four different stickers in total with an example shown above. These are completely personalised with the school name added.  We are happy to provide you with a quote for these.

Downloadable Tracker

Included in the entry price, we provide each school with a bespoke tracker to download, print out and give to pupils to record and track their progress through the challenge. Teachers then sign off this off once each pupil has completed the magic marathon distance.

Certificate Example


We provide a bespoke downloadable certificate for each school which can include the school colours and/or logo.  If you are happy to provide your pupil's names we will produce a named PDF certificate for each participant.  This is included in the entry price!

Working on a budget?

We have three great medals that are available at just £1.99 (+VAT) each. They are full metal medals measuring between 45 and 50mm in diameter. They also come with 20 characters of free engraving. You still get a free downloadable tracker and certificates as part of the entry price!

 As teachers ourselves we understand what it's like to be working in schools at the moment so are more than happy to personalise any aspect of the challenge to the needs of your school.
