NEW for May, two free programs to choose from: Activities with Miles (similar to the April program but with new content) or Running with Miles, appropriate for kids (and adults!) that want to focus on learning to run longer.

While kids are without school PE or after-school sports, the need to keep moving is at an all-time high when parents and guardians are stretched for time, attention and creative ideas. Let these free plans lighten the burden to help families focus on the fun.

There are two optional finisher packages ($20), a youth hat and the Miles medal, Super Kid cape and Miles plush (same package offered with April program).


Sign up for the free program through the HMF event registration system as you would a race event. If electing to purchase the finisher package for $20, simply add it through the registration process.

Each weekend, email updates will be sent with an outline of kids exercise activities for each day of the upcoming week. Video tutorials with Miles and special guests will help show participants proper techniques, including warm-up and cool-down exercises.


Activities with Miles will get the kids moving and motivated at home with weekly activity schedules, videos and more. Activities are best suited for younger children and include Musical Laps, Whistle & Move and Solve the Puzzle running games. Kids will be occupied for 30 minutes a day with guided warm-up and cool-down exercises included with tips from Miles.

Running with Miles will provide weekly guides to build endurance, tips to keep motivated and how-to videos on stretching and form.


Use the Miles with Miles Progress Chart to track activities and help keep motivated through the month. Access it digitally, just click on the prompt to “make a copy” for each child, then save it in your google drive. DIGITAL CHART

Miles With Miles videos were created in partnership with Rising Stars, a 9 week training program to encourage youth ages 4 to 13 to get up and move. The program is sponsored by SmartStart Pediatrics of Glastonbury along with support from Sound Runner of Glastonbury, Connecticut Sports and Fitness and The Glastonbury River Runners.
