Coaches Notes February ’24

Important February items:

  • RUN4KIDS ’24 is BACK! Saturday, March 23rd, 2024, at Auburndale Intermediate School in Corona, CA.
  • Medal Orders Update. We plan to send out a special email in mid-April with a link to place your medal orders.
  • Waiting on an order? We’re ‘running’ behind on some orders due to supply and production delays.  We’re working hard with our suppliers to fix this immediately. We appreciate your patience and apologize for the inconvenience this delay has caused.
  • Bad weather days, no problem! Don’t stop earning miles. Join Ready, Set, Gold! for monthly workout videos (approved inclement weather miles) and essential social and emotional learning topics especially designed for grades 5-12.
  • NEW FUNDING SOURCES in California! We are thrilled to see multiple school districts implementing 100 Mile Club district-wide this year through new funding sources, including ELO-P, for extended learning programs at elementary schools in California. Contact us for more information or contact your district to see if funding support is available. 
  • It’s not too late to start 100 Mile Club! January can be a great time to get up and moving if you’ve not been able to quite yet. Great things are happening, and we will have extra fun in 2024!

It is important to pick the method that works best for you. Check out our Program Guide, Chapter #5, for more ideas, or contact your program specialist for ideas. 
  • How many times do coaches place orders throughout the year?
    • Coaches can place as many orders throughout the year as necessary.
    • We encourage you to place your order in time to immediately reward your students with their 25 Mile Signature T-shirt when their goal is reached. Many schools open registration to their students monthly, placing orders as needed. Shipping and Handling charges apply.
    • Plan ahead and receive bulk ordering discounts when possible!
    • Ordering is available year-round. There are no cutoff dates, but the 100 Mile Club color cycle begins July 1 and ends June 30 of each year, after which the color for that year is no longer available.
  • Can I join 100 Mile Club myself if I am a parent/teacher? Absolutely! We encourage parents and teachers to join 100 Mile Club and run or walk with your participants. Many of our most successful programs have achieved such a level of energy because of the support, participation, and collaboration of the parent/teacher with the program.
