INCH and MILES: The Journey to Success

Coach John Wooden’s book, “INCH and MILES: The Journey to Success.” will enhance your program by teaching essential life skills necessary to succeed in life.

Did you know the 100 Mile Club is also a life skills program? The life skills for the 100 Mile Club are based on The Pyramid of Success, created by basketball Coach John Wooden. Our evidence-based program challenges kids to run, jog, walk or roll 100 miles during a school year. The life skills outlined in The Pyramid of Success provide participants (children and adults) with the attributes necessary to succeed in life.   

We suggest teachers or parents use one different life skill each day discussing it before the kids go out to run. This will strengthen your program by implementing social and emotional learning benefiting the mind and body.

Together each month, we will focus on a single skill chosen from Coach Wooden’s Pyramid. These life skills will teach true personal success and fitness, guiding participants to new levels of achievement. We believe that every single individual deserves to be healthy, happy, and connected.
