New York City Marathon Finisher Ashton Kutcher Is Training His Kids for a 5K

Inspired by his race in the Big Apple, the actor wants to share the sport with his family. Kutcher’s wife, actress Mila Kunis, told People that their kids, Wyatt, 8, and Dimitri, 5, were so inspired cheering for their dad in New York that they wanted to lace up, too.

The kids have already logged a half-mile to kickstart their training. Ashton Kutcher, 44, ran the New York Marathon for Thorn, a charity he started that protects children from trafficking and online child sexual abuse. He raised more than $1 million, part of which came from leading a virtual Peloton series during which he ran alongside celebs, including Kim Kardashian and Kenny Chesney. 

He was one of many celebrities to finish the New York City marathon this year. 

When asked if Kunis will log miles with her family she told People, “I can lie and be like, ‘Absolutely!’ But I’m not.”As many runners can relate, Ashton Kutcher was feeling the finish-line high after last week’s New York City marathon. Since his sub-4 hour finish, the actor has brought his kids into the running fold by starting to train them for a 5K, according to People.
