Along the way, they will receive an exclusive Marathon Kids rewards, created and provided by Nike, for every 26.2 miles (the distance of a marathon) they accumulate over time. The rewards include a Marathon Kids-Nike T-shirt (26.2 miles), exclusive Nike shoelaces (52.4 miles), Nike patch (78.6 miles) and a Nike dog tag (104.8 miles).
