Mighty Milers

 

Mighty Milers is a FREE running program for kids of all fitness levels from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. It's designed to get kids moving and prevent obesity and illness. Participation in Mighty Milers helps kids build their self-esteem, and learn to make and reach personal goals.

Over the course of a program cycle, children in Mighty Milers set goals to run and/or walk a certain distance and earn rewards for reaching milestones along the way.

Mighty Milers is easy to implement, and has a flexible structure so you can tailor the program for the unique needs of your school and environment. NYRR provides logistical, motivational and training support so that your staff members and/or adult volunteers can run the program at any school or community center.
