All 1-Mile runners will receive a cotton short-sleeved T-shirt, goody bag, virtual race bag and finish line food and refreshments.


We have experienced restrictions from the city on the course for our 1-mile event this Saturday. These restrictions required a start location that would cause the course to run long.

As a result, we have determined the best outcome for our runners is to operate a rolling start. Your official chip time will not start until you cross the timing mats about 1/4 mile into the course at E. 6th Street and will end one mile later when you cross the finish line. This “rolling zone” from Public Square to E. 6th will allow you to build up to your race pace through a walk or jog before crossing the timing mats. 

Overall placings will be decided by chip time alone.



1 Mile Overall Awards

The top 3 men and women overall will receive an award. Awards will be mailed out after the event.
