logo of midweek mile & dash

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! Finally, Atlanta Track Club Elite Men and Women will be running a Mile time trial, with their speed and strategy on display for us all. This will surely be a new and exciting way to end our fall season.

We are offering two Mile options: "Open Boys and Girls" timeslots for kids of all ages (6 - 14) and abilities, and a "Competitive Boys and Girls" timeslot for children looking for a little more competition and who are estimated to finish their mile in less than 8:00/mile. Participants can also join us VIRTUALLY. Virtual registration includes a printable bib and finisher's certificate.

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.
