MedalKids

Kids can create their own account on MedalMad. They can then have the excitement of recieving medals in their name. MedalKids can take part in any challenge on MedalMad, some have cool certificates as an add on, especially for kids, or big kids.

MedalKids accounts are different, they do not have access to the social network part of the MedalMad website, including the newsfeed, virtual teams and personal targets. They do have their own annual and monthly leaderboard in the MedalMad app.

Getting Kids Active

Our challenges are designed to help children stay active. How far they should run in one go is a difficult question, as every child is different and it depends on age, physical development, fitness levels, type of running and personal preference. Although many children have naturally high levels of aerobic fitness, they are limited in their capacity to generate energy for high-intensity activities.

A child's aerobic system is not fully developed so it's important that your child does not undertake intense levels of endurance running as they are at risk of injuries, abnormal growth, malnutrition and psychological burn out.

Running Recommendations

Below are our recommendations for the maximum distance a child should run.

Under 9: Maximum distance: 3km
Age 9-11: Maximum distance: 5km
Age 12-14: Maximum distance: 10km

So remember you can complete our challenges in parts by breaking down the bigger distances into several smaller distances.
