How to Help Your Kids Set and Reach Goals!

HARD WORK: Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.” – Coach John Wooden.

100 Mile Club participants have a big dream to reach 100 miles and earn a gold medal. Our program materials set students up for success by teaching them to set long-term and short-term goals. The journey of 100 miles is broken down into 25-mile intervals, allowing each participant to find their own pace and achieve their goal. An essential life skill taught with goal setting is HARD WORK which teaches kids to pursue the goals they set out to achieve. 

Our 100 Mile Club motto is ALWAYS EARNED. NEVER GIVEN.

3 Steps to Help Your Kids Get Active and Moving!

  • Set specific goals. Ask your kids to set goals that can be measured (For example, “I want to run 3 miles each week.” .)


  • Break it down. Teach your kids to break their goals into smaller, manageable steps (celebrate every 25-mile milestone).


  • Make it a classroom plan. When classmates make goal-setting a classroom effort, they learn to support each other.

Accepting the challenge to run or walk for a whole school year is not an easy task. But each year, students and families across the country join the 100 Mile Club movement.
