The Midweek Mile & Dash is a FREE youth event designed for kids ages 14 and under. This event's location is Blackburn Park in Brookhaven. All participants can have fun in the Track & Field Zone with Atlanta Track Club's elite athletes while parents learn more about our youth events and youth programming in the information tent. Challenge yourself throughout the fall to improve your performances with each event! Milers can try out the Dash, as well.

We are offering two Mile options: "Open Youth" timeslots for kids of all ages (6 - 14) and abilities, and a "Competitive Youth" timeslot for children looking for a little more competition and who are estimated to finish their mile in less than 8:00/mile.

Atlanta Track Club events are held rain or shine. However, the threat of lightning or other severe weather in the vicinity of the event may result in a delay or cancellation. For full details on our event policies, including weather, refunds and cancellations, click here.
