The Midweek Mile & Dash is a FREE youth event designed for kids ages 14 and under. This event will take place under the lights of the Campbell High School's McDaniel Stadium in Smyrna. Milers will be timed as they complete four laps of the track, and dashers will run their 50 meters in the infield. We will also have a fun Track & Field Zone, a podium for finisher photos, and special guests from Atlanta Track Club's elite team!

We are offering two Mile options for the kids: "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.

CALLING ALL COACHES AND PARENTS! You get to have some fun, too. Sign up to run in the coaches/parents/volunteers/staff wave, and give the children an opportunity to play a supporting role. All paces welcome.

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.

The timing device for the Mile is the Chronotrack single use B-tag. In order to receive an accurate time, please confirm your child's bib is...

  • Clearly visible on the front of the torso
  • Unaltered and unmodified (Do not fold or wrinkle)
  • Pinned in all four corners
  • Not covered (jackets, fuel belts, etc.)
  • If you do not wish to have your child timed, you may peel off the timing device or simply bend it several times.
