(Updated on September 6th, 2016)
This is the second 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.
We will start the Mile race for 6th through 8th graders after the 10K race starts. The 10K race will start exactly at 8:00 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. We were going to run it in reverse but to reduce the risk of someone getting hurt when going through the parade floats the city and GSTC have decided to keep it the same direction.
Shirt Order Reduced
(Updated September 6th at 7 pm)
I originally ordered 250-260 shirts but because of low numbers in preregistration I am only having 206 printed. There are about 67 shirts left in various sizes.
Those who participate will also receive a bottle of powerade after they finish the race and there will be some peach taffy as well.
Remember most of all have fun during the race.
