Atlanta Track Club Mission Statement
Atlanta Track Club is a member-based organization centered around running that delivers world-class events, training programs and community outreach activities to the Metro Atlanta Area. We encourage both youth and adults to start and continue running regardless of ability or fitness level, and provide outlets for all athletes to continue to grow and compete. Our staff and volunteers create camaraderie and encourage participation and competition through a calendar of diverse and exciting events. We collaborate with our partners to promote and extend the benefits of running and walking to the greater community.
Kilometer Kids is Atlanta Track Club's oldest and largest youth running program. The free, game-based curriculum is designed to teach kids 5-12 about goal setting, healthy habits, respect, and community building, all through exposing them to the sport of running. Over the course of the season, the goal for every Kilometer Kid is to run 26.2 miles or the equivalent of a marathon by attending two practices a week for 10 weeks. As a noncompetitive program, it's not about running the fastest or winning the race. Instead it's all about working hard, being kind and having fun while becoming more physically active, being a part of a team and finding joy in the process.
