Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How many weeks does Mini Milers go for?
Five weeks. We meet each Sunday at 2pm.
Q: Where does Mini Milers meet?
At Brentwood Academy's Football and Track and Field complex.
Q: Are there bathrooms at the track?
There are, but we encourage everyone to use the restroom before you come so that you don’t miss out on any of the program.
Q: How long should I expect Mini Milers to last?
Each practice will last about an hour.
Q: What is the format of the program? What will my child be doing?
2:00-2:10 – Warm-ups, stretching, and getting into our groups
2:10-2:35 – Running drills and games
2:35-3:00 – Age Group Races
Each age group will race their designated distance.
Can I take my child when they are done with their race?
You may take your child when they are done, but we encourage all athletes to stay and cheer on the other groups. Not only do we want to instill a love of running, and racing in the children, but we also want to teach them how to be a good sport!
Q: How will the groups be divided up?
Each child will be designated a group by age (4yo, 5yo, 6yo, 7yo, 8yos and up). When they race we will have a boys’ race and a girls’ race for each age group.
Q: What is the Mini Milers weather policy?
We will not ever run if there is lightning and will likely cancel in the event of heavy rain due to safety. We will make the decision by noon on Sunday and send an email if the program is cancelled.
Q: What do we need to bring and wear for Mini Milers?
You need to bring a water bottle, running shoes, and comfortable clothes that are easy to move in, and you don’t mind getting dirty.
Q: What do I get for my entry fee?
Each registered child will get 5 weeks of fun in running, including a race at the end of each practice. Each child will receive a race bib for each week, an awesome Mini Milers tech tee, and the chance to win other prizes.
