What Qualifies as a Heart-Pumping Activity?

"Heart-pumping activities" are any forms of movement that increase the heart rate.

At Marathon Kids, we equate 20 minutes of a heart-pumping activity to 1 mile.

So it's another way for participants to earn mileage.

Adding minutes of activity is optional but works great for:

  • inclement weather

  • indoor lap time

  • for clubs with no outdoor track/lap space

  • really any minutes of moderate to vigorous movement your kids do!
