Mighty Milers is an easy-to-implement K-8 youth running program designed for all fitness levels.
Children strive to complete one to four "marathons of miles" (26.2 to 104.8 miles) over the course of a program cycle at their school or community center. They achieve this by running or walking upwards of half a mile two-five times a week during supervised sessions.
New York Road Runners provides training, resources, and staff support, plus incentives for the children as they reach milestones toward their distance goal.
