Charity – Martine Verweij


That’s our mantra, our call to arms.
A mission to inspire kids to move.
From toddlers to teens.
To get up, get out, and get active.

It’s our Passion.
Something we take seriously.
Because when you start to move young,
we all move forward together.
Healthier, happier, and more confident.

In the community, in the park, at school.
A little or a lot.

A Marathon Kid, or a Park Kid.
Success is more kids out there running the way they want.
And we’ll be there every step of the way to inspire, reward
and celebrate.

Join us, Join in. Have fun.
Get moving to get our kids moving again.

Because all kids were made to run free.

Since 2010, Kids Run Free’s running programmes, Marathon Kids and Park Kids has engaged over 100,000 children to get moving. We have gone from strength to strength, working with over 300 schools and at 32 difference park locations nationally.

In 2016, we secured funding from our sponsor to take a giant step to take our running programmes to the next level. We committed resources to develop a bespoke software programme to evidence participation.

In 2017, we launched the Kids Run Free digital tracking system, which measures the participation at school. Both the number of children taking part and the distance travelled.

In the same year, we also created the Kids Run Free mobile phone APP, where the frequency and distance ran can be monitored. Providing the full picture for each child’s physical activity.

Creating more opportunities for role modelling by encouraging more family exercise time during school holidays and weekends by running in community parks.

From toddlers to teens, schools, homes & communities, we are igniting children’s passion for sport & physical activity, encouraging them to lead healthier, happier & more active lifestyles.

The challenge for Kids Run Free is to allow kids to keep running for free.

Our funding stream is currently from Sponsorship, Raceways CIC, Grants and Trusts and Individual donations.

If you are able to help support the charity through Sponsorship, donations or helping spread the word, you will be helping to transform the health of the next generation through the power of sport!
