MISD Marathon Kids


  • Seventeen campuses received a total grant of over $50,000 to participate in the Marathon Kids program last year.  This year, we plan to add three more campuses for a total of 20! 

    Midland ISD registered 17 running clubs through the Marathon Kids National Grant which saw over
    3,300 runners participate across the district. Twenty-one coaches and volunteers participated in the
    first ever Marathon Kids Leadership Academy held at General Tommy Franks Elementary. Ninety-five
    percent of runners ran at least 26.2 miles over the school year and the top-performing Marathon Kids
    were recognized at the Root Beer Mile which ended the season.
