The Midweek Mile & Dash is a FREE youth event designed for kids ages 14 and under. This event will take place in Brookhaven's Blackburn Park. The timed mile is for children ages 6 - 14 and will follow the paths of Blackburn Park. Dashers will run their 50 meters in the grass. *NEW* this spring, the dash is now available for all children, ages 14 and under. Dash participants will run with children in their age group for safety. If your Miler is planning on running the dash as well, they should select a mile timeslot in registration, and can "add on" the dash in the registration platform. This is the second of three spring midweek mile & dash events (March 16, April 13, May 11). Challenge yourself throughout the spring to improve your performances with each event!

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.
