In 2001, the Grandfather
Mountain Highland Games introduced some changes in the age categories
and the length of the kilted races for youngsters. Again this
year the kilted mile for 12 year-olds and younger will be held
on Sunday and will be just one lap around the track. The age categories
will be 11 and 12, 9 and 10, 7 and 8, 5 and 6, and 4 and under.
Children must register at the Athletic Events
tent to run in the kilted mile events.
