(Updated on July 14, 2018)
This is the 6th year for the Mile race. We added the race in 2013 for a group of younger runners to be involved in the Peach Day's Celebration. It is a 1 Mile Race for 6th through 8th graders.
This year we are adding a 5K race for this one year considering it is the 45th year of the race. The current plan is not to have it next year. So for all of those who have ever wanted to do the Peach Days Race but felt like you couldn't get through a 10K there is a 5K this year for you. But it may not be back next year. Take advantage of the situation.
We will start the Mile race for 6th through 8th graders after the 10K and 5K race starts. The 10K race will start exactly at 8:00 am, the 5K at around 8:10 am and then the 1 Mile Race will follow at around 8:20 am.
Here are directions for the 1 mile race.
- Start Line is by the City Center Plaza
- Head south on main.
- Circle around cone around the 300 south and main intersection and then head back north on main.
- The finish line will be by the start line.
- Awards will be given.
We are running the 10K race in the same direction and using the same route as usual.
Two water stops will be provided for the 10K race. They will be at miles 2-2.5 and 5 approximately. For safety reasons we are limiting those who can participate to 14 and older. Please remember this is a ROAD RACE. Thousands of people come for the parade and traffic is heavy. We want everyone to run safely. Please watch out for your safety because others may not.
This years race:
We will start the race at 8 am sharp before the 1 mile race.
We will start the course at 58 North Main Street which is City Center Plaza.
We will run the course in the same direction as we have in the past.
