Chennai Kidathon is a first of its kind and one of the largest amateur marathons exclusively for children in India. It is not only a flag bearer of health and fitness amongst children, but also promotes social consciousness amongst them to ‘run for a cause’. Chennai Kidathon is open to children between 3 and 15 years of age, with run categories range from 400m to 2000m. It requires minimal prior training by participants as distances are suited for amateur runners and conducted in a non-competitive, fun environment.
