We want all students in the New Albany-Plain Local School District to join the MOVEment and participate with immediate family members in the inaugural New Albany Kids Marathon, a virtual initiative to keep kids healthy.  The marathon is open to students are between 4-18 years of age.  Accumulate 26.2 miles between April 1, 2020 and May 31, 2020. Physical activity helps keep our immune system healthy thereby reducing the risk of contracting a virus or the severity of an illness.

How It Works

Students who are between 4-18 years of age must be registered by a parent or legal guardian.  They must reside in the New Albany school district.  Registration and participation are FREE! You can choose to donate to Healthy New Albany while registering so that we can continue to serve our community as best as possible during these trying times. Beginning April 1, 2020, and ending May 31, 2020, participants will be expected to complete a full marathon, 26.2 miles.

  • ​Participating with parents and siblings is highly recommended as this is an opportunity for family connectiveness through physical activity.  Participation with those outside one’s immediate family is highly discouraged in an effort to contain the spread of COVID-19.
  • Each child must be registered separately.  
  • To register for the New Albany Kids Marathon, click the Sign Up button at the top of the page. Participants are expected to track their own mileage (with the help of their families). Download the sample activity log linked here - this log can be printed and filled in to keep track of mileage.
  • No more than 3 miles should be logged on any one day regardless of the number of additional miles covered. This is not a competitive event and it is important to continue to promote sustained movement.
  • There are a number of ways to earn your marathon miles: You can walk and receive a credit of one mile for every 20 minutes or 2000 steps, bike and get one mile every 15 minutes, move in a wheelchair and receive credit for one mile every 10 minutes or swim and receive credit for one mile every 25 minutes.
  • Participants will be expected to accumulate the number of miles (26.2) to complete a full marathon.
  • Upon completion of 26.2 miles, submit this completion form for validation and to receive a prize!

Run, walk, or ride your way to 26.2 miles and receive a special giveaway!*

*Giveaways are limited to school-age kids who reside in the New Albany Plain Local School District.
