The Downhill Mile
Saturday, July 23, 2016
The inaugural Downhill Mile is fast approaching. We are looking forward to seeing you all at Lake Metropark’s Penitentiary Glen Reservation this Saturday.
Advanced Packet Pick up and Registration: Achilles Running Shop – Mentor Ohio (7439 Mentor Ave, 44060) from 12 – 7
Race Day Packet Pick up and Registration: Pavilion at Penitentiary Glen between 8 and 10:00
Chick-Fil-A kids run will get things started at 9:45. This race will be held completely within the park grounds so no worries about having the kiddos out on the road.
All runners will start at 10:20. Make sure you arrive with plenty of time to sign in, get your packet and get to the starting line. This is a straigh downhill course as shown in the map below. You will need time to get to the starting line.
We will have a DJ on hand to keep everyone having fun before the race and while we do awards. We will also have some yard games like cornhole (bags for those of you from outside North East Ohio) set up near the finish line. There will be water and Nuun for after the race refreshements and Chick-Fil-A will be handing out chicken sandwiches to runners at the finish.
