Fleet Feet Kids Mini Milers Series
Start Date: TBD
Registration: CLOSED until 2020
Summer - starts in July
Fall - starts in September
The 6-week Fleet Feet Kids Mini Milers Series is a great way to introduce the sport of Track & Field to children between the ages of 6 and 11 years old, in a fun and low-key atmosphere. It is designed to expose young runners to all facets of the sport with non-intimidating activities and exercises. We want kids to fall in love with the sport while exposing them to the fun of movement and the beauty of their own athletic bodies. Kids will learn all the track basics, differences between sprinting and long distance, what type of track events there are, and learn which events they prefer. Overall, the main purpose of this program is to show kids how to enjoy running, racing, and competing.
MINI MILERS SERIES PERKS:
- Fleet Feet Mini Milers T-Shirt for all participants
- Volunteer coaches to motivate and make sure the kids are safe and having fun
- Finishers medals at each of the Mini Milers track meets

WHO IS THE MINI MILERS SERIES FOR?
Children ages 6 to 11! The Kids Mini Milers Series is about learning to run and having fun. The kids will learn how fun running can be while working on getting faster.
