Get your young runners ready — the Mighty Mile is this Saturday at Reston Town Center.
The annual Mighty Mile is a race just for kids ages 6 to 14.
Race time for the oldest runners (ages 12 and up) is 8 a.m., with the rest of the age groups following every 15 minutes. Runners ages 4-5 will have a half mile course at 9 a.m., and there will be a Tot Trot (100 yards) at 9L15 a.m.
Packet pick up will be at the Reston Town Center PR Running store (11911 Democracy Dr.) on Friday April 1, 3 to 7 p.m., and Saturday before the race starting at 7 a.m.
All runners in the mile and half-mile will be timed and will receive a finisher medal (ribbon for the Tot Trot runners). No parents will be allowed on the course with their children; parents will only be allowed to run in the Tot Trot. The course will be blocked off to all traffic and lined with volunteers for monitoring and safety of all participants.
Entry fee is $20 ($15 for half mile; $10 for Tot Trot). Sign up on PR Race’s website.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
