“This is a great way to introduce people to walking and/or running for fitness and enjoyment,” said Race Director Ralph Staph. “It’s a very popular distance and participants will be able to run it however they want. They can run it competitively to achieve a personal record, or run it with family and friends who are just starting to get into the sport of running. We want to offer more events for all levels of runners.”

Cost of the one mile run is $15 if you sign up Aug. 1-10, or $20 Aug. 11 up until the race is sold out. No registration will be accepted the day of the race. The event includes a cotton short-sleeved T-shirt and goody bag.
