The Midweek Mile & Dash is a FREE youth event designed for kids ages 14 and under. This event's location is Westside Park, Atlanta's newest and largest greenspace. The timed Mile will run along the park path and is for ages 6 - 14, while the Dashers will run 50 meters in the field near the playground. Join us for the final of three midweek mile & dash events this spring!

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.

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.
