More about the Monroe Milers

Monroe Milers is a high quality, developmentally appropriate urban youth running program. During fall and spring training sessions, youth, ages 8 and up, train for a 5K race. A young runners group, ages 6 and 7, train for a one mile race. Monroe Milers brings a diverse community together to work toward fitness. It has been incredibly successful in involving novice and experienced runners, low and middle income youth, and children with special needs. The program is supported by over 25 volunteer coaches. In spring 2014, 45 youth ran with the Monroe Milers.
