Ross F. Baldwin Elementary

Marathon Kids

Students will be encouraged to run up to the equivalent of four marathons over the course of the school year, which equals 104.8 miles, one day at a time. 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).  Incorporating Marathon Kids into the school day will have a significant impact on a child’s ability to focus and be productive in the classroom.
