Mini Milers

Mini Milers is launching this Spring!

Planning for the 2023 Mini Milers program is currently underway. If your school is not engaged but would like to be involved, please reach out to youth@runvermont.org or call 802-863-8412.

 

Mini Milers Details

The Mini Milers program gives children ages 4-10 years old access to fitness, good nutrition, community service and goal setting, all while having fun and being safe. Children meet weekly with Mini Miler leaders to get motivated, educated and keep track of their progress. In addition to mileage incentives, t-shirt, and medal, participants receive monthly e-letters filled with ideas, fun activities and running stories.

How it Works For Mini Milers Groups:

We provide a Leader Manual with lessons and fun activities, including a Mileage Tracker for each participant.

Groups meet weekly (or twice a week) for an hour at a location to be determined by the Leader(s).

Participants use their Mileage Tracker to chart their fitness miles.

Participants submit miles to their Mini Milers leader.

All participants will receive a t-shirt and a medal.

Individual groups will celebrate their success at their program site, and each participant will be recognized.

Participants are encouraged to participate in the Mini Marathon.

How it Works For Individuals:

We provide a Parent Manual with lessons and fun activities, including a Mileage Tracker for each participant.

Participants use their Mileage Tracker to chart their fitness miles.

Participants' parents email RunVermont as benchmarks are met to receive their incentives.

In addition to mileage incentives, t-shirt, and medal, participants receive monthly e-letters.

Participants are encouraged to participate in our Mini Marathon.

Dates:

Once groups begin, specific dates are determined by Group Leaders at each location. After the registration deadline, participants will receive information via email from their program Leader(s) with pertinent information.

Group Leaders:

RunVermont provides Mini Milers Training for all Group Leaders.

RunVermont requires all coaches to submit to a criminal background check.
