Did you know 01 June 2016 is  ‘Global Running Day’? As the organisers of the Victoria Falls and Kilimanjaro Marathons, we think this is a pretty cool initiative. The Million Kid Run aims to get young people moving. The goal is to have a million kids around the world pledge to run on 1 June, 2016. The Million Kid Run is about making fitness fun, and inspiring kids to embrace running as a way to get healthy and fit.

Participation is easy – just pledge to take part in some type of running activity on 01 June. It can be a solo lap around the block, a long run with friends, or even a game of tag with your kids. Get any kids you know – sons, daughters, nieces, nephews to choose their running activities and be a part of something incredible.

Take the pledge

And whilst you are in running modedon’t forget to register for the Vic Falls Marathonhalf marathon or fun run before online registration closes on 15 June.
