The Midweek Mile & Dash is a FREE youth event designed for kids ages 14 and under. This event's brand new location is Legacy Park in Decatur. Utilizing the groomed trails within the park, children will get to experience a true cross country-style event. An abundance of course volunteers will ensure their safety as they take on the trail. 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. Mile participants can also try out the dash! Fernbank Museum will be onsite to provide a science-based activity for the children, and we will have food trucks onsite, as well.

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.
