Mini Milers

Mini Milers is launching this Spring!

Planning for the 2024 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 elementary school children 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, get educated, get some exercise, and keep track of their progress.

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.

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

We encourage Mini Milers participants to run in the Mini Marathon on May 25th. They will receive a special discount code to register.

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

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
