Kick-off season is HERE, and schools are hitting the ground running! Schools across the country are building excitement and encouraging students to walk or run 100 miles. We encourage schools to hold kick-offs or launch events to start off their 100 Mile Club journey. This could happen in the form of a school assembly, a group run, or another format. Whatever you choose to do make it feel special!

TOP 4 FAQ for the NEW school year: 

  • How do we track miles? For every school in our program, mile tracking is a little bit different. There are methods that range from very low-tech, cost-effective ones to the highest of high-tech, generally with a cost. It is important to pick the method that works best for you. Ideas and examples are found on our website, in Coaches Resources, in our Tool Kit, and in our Program Guide. 
  • I’m moving to a new school within my district or moving to a new school in a different district. How do I keep running 100 Mile Club? It’s so exciting when teachers and coaches who’ve moved schools continue 100 Mile Club at their new site! We are here to help you transition.  
  • How to order incentive packages for school? You can order incentives online through our web store! Log in with the same ‘Head Coach’ email address you used to register your school, and you will see a special ‘Coaches Only’ section of the store. Click there and all your incentives and program materials will be available to purchase. 
  • How do I get my ‘Legacy’ school code? Legacy codes were sent out via email mid-August. If you have not received your code, contact us directly at (951)340-2290 or [email protected].
