It's best to invite parents in bulk when you roster your participants especially if you have a large number of participants but you can invite them one by one any time during your season.

When you invite parents, they will be sent an email to create a Marathon Kids account which will allow them to see their child's progress and submit miles completed from home.

Invite parents in bulk

  • Upload Roster by including one parent's name and email

    • Use the Parent First Name, Last Name, and Email columns of the spreadsheet to include one parent's information

  • Recruit Tool automatically gives parents the option to create their account

    • After a parent completes the online enrollment form they are directed to check their mail for the invitation to create their account.
