Can I take my child when they are done with their race?
You may take your child when they are done, but we encourage all athletes to stay and cheer on the other groups. Not only do we want to instill a love of running, and racing in the children, but we also want to teach them how to be a good sport!
Q: How will the groups be divided up?
Each child will be designated a group by age (4yo, 5yo, 6yo, 7yo, 8yos and up). When they race we will have a boys’ race and a girls’ race for each age group.

If it is raining or storming and we decide it is unsafe for the kids to run on the track we will make the decision by Noon on Sunday and you will be notified by email.
Q: What do we need to bring and wear for Mini Milers?
You need to bring a water bottle, running shoes, and comfortable clothes that are easy to move in, and you don’t mind getting dirty.
Q: What do I get for my entry fee?
Each registered child will get 5 weeks of fun in running, including a race at the end of each practice. Each child will receive a race bib for each week, an awesome Mini Milers tech tee, and the chance to win other prizes.
