How can I motivate my children to run?

At Run Mummy Run we are passionate about inspiring our children to lead healthy lifestyles and take after their mum’s by getting involved in running.  Our charity partner Kids Run Free organises fun, running based activities for children in their local parks and schools. Currently they have two children’s running programmes: Kids Run Free Running Races and Kids’ Marathon.  More information about their work can be found at




Kids’ Marathon is recruiting schools in Leicestershire:

Kids Marathon is an exciting project that aims to give school children the opportunity to complete a marathon throughout the course of the school year by running laps of a course, set up by KRF on the school playing field or playground.

This project is now starting its third year and is going from strength to strength. This year KRF plan to have 40 schools across the country taking part in the initiative, 17 of these schools have already launched and another 13 are scheduled to launch very soon.

For schools in Leicestershire we have the opportunity to offer four schools FREE places on the Kids’ Marathon program in return for taking part in a research project headed by Loughborough University. All you need to do is contact your child’s school and let them know you would like them to get involved.
