2021 Fall Midweek Mile & Dash

We are culminating Atlanta Track Club's Youth Month (August) and kicking off our fall youth events season with our first Midweek Mile & Dash of fall! Come check us out and learn more about Atlanta Track Club's youth offerings. We will have informational booths for Kilometer Kids, Youth Team, Youth Events, Volunteer Opportunities, and Membership.

The Midweek Mile & Dash is a FREE youth event is designed for kids ages 14 and under. Children ages 6 to 14 may run the timed mile, and children 6 and under can run the dash, which is approximately 50 meters. We are offering both an in-person and a virtual registration option. Our in-person event will be race by appointment, thereby providing participants with a socially distant and safe experience moving through the event area. Atlanta Track Club will provide detailed instructions on how to navigate the in-person Midweek Mile & Dash before event day. Choose your time slots in registration then stay tuned!

Participants also have the option to participate VIRTUALLY! The free mile & dash are a fun way to get kids active and fit.
