Seattle Kids Marathon


Run a marathon, one step at time


The Sports Institute at UW Medicine and Seattle Marathon Association have teamed up to give kids more opportunities to move this fall! 

This collaboration unites two programs – The Daily Mile™, an initiative of The Sports Institute in Washington state elementary schools, and the Seattle Kids Marathon – to help kids and families stay active during the school year.

The Seattle Kids Marathon is virtual this year! Students from kindergarten to eighth grade are encouraged to complete a full 26.2 mile marathon, one mile at a time, between Oct. 1 and Dec. 15. Students from throughout Washington state and the U.S. are encouraged to participate. No matter where you are, you’re invited!

If your child participates in The Daily Mile at their school, they can register for this year’s Seattle Kids Marathon at a discounted rate. Ask your child’s teacher for a coupon code. Register by clicking on the button below.


The Daily Mile is a free, school-based program that encourages children to run or jog for fifteen minutes every day to improve their health, concentration, and learning. The Sports Institute is working with The Daily Mile Foundation to improve the health and well-being of children in the United States, while identifying and understanding the connections between physical activity and improved academic, behavioral and health outcomes in students.
