Welcome to our calendar of local Meet-ups and Community Events!
All calendar items are independent local meet-ups hosted by outside volunteers, or are organized events ran and managed by other organizations. All are open to 100 Mile Club participants and families.
Please check periodically for time/date changes and cancellations, or contact the volunteer listed as “organizer” for any questions.
Local meet-ups provide students and individuals opportunities to earn miles. These meet-ups are provided to enhance a school’s efforts to run their program.
Credit slips will be issued only for time listed for each event.
 
Weather Permitting

All events scheduled are as weather permits. Events may be cancelled up until the time of the event. Every effort will be made to advertise any cancellations or changes, including updates on the website and on social media. It is ultimately up to the attendee to verify if an event is scheduled. Hosts name and phone number are listed to also verify the activity of an event.

Credit slips will not be issued for cancelled events.

 

Want to host a meet-up?

A few simple steps will get you started.

1.       Submit your event online

2.       Attend 30 minute training (in-person and on-line options)

3.       Background check (link provided by 100 Mile Club) $24 one-time fee, host’s responsibility.

4.       If connected to a school, verify outside miles are accepted for 100 Mile Club credit.

After completing the steps above, you will be notified within 2-3 business days and your event will be posted on our website and open for kids and families to attend.

NOTE: While these listed meet ups may be counted toward a participant’s 100 Mile Club goal, it is ultimately the decision of each school to honor miles from this calendar at their site. At most events, a credit slip will be given to take back to a child’s school for mile-credit.
