Description

The PR Mile race is just what the name says, a ONE MILE, chip timed race with quarter mile splits on a unique, slowly descending, USTAF certified course that whould allow you to run your fastest, PERSONAL RECORD mile- ever!

Let's not kid ourselves, it is all about speed.  Whether your preferred distance is a 5K or a marathon, we all really want to know how fast we can run a single mile.  Most of us have probably run mile repeats on the track for training.  This is totally different-not even close.  We are offering you the rare opportunity to run just a single mile-all out...as fast as your legs and lungs will allow!

More than that, you will be competing with your peers in our unique wave format.

Here is how we designed the race:

We will be running 10 year age group waves every 10 minutes.  However, if you are an elite( or just think you are), you can sign up for our "elite" wave.  Every 10 minutes, beginning with age 70+ men and women, the clocks will be reset and the gun will go off.  

Eventually, we will work our way down to the Kid's Dash 14 and under age group culminating with the final race of the evening, the elite wave!  After the racing is over it will be time to celebrate everyone's PR performances with a beer and BBQ Bash hosted by the best BBQ place in the Midwest, Chuck's Southern Comfort!

Does it get any better than this?  Yes, it does.  In my mind, as a veteran runner and racer, price should be relative to distance so all this for the low, low price of $24.95!!!

AWARDS:

Nothing bothers your two race directors, John and Tiffany, more than when we run a race good enough to be eligble for an award and get BUPKIS, NADA, ZILCH!!!  What the heck; we train hard for weeks (enduring snide family remarks and getting up before the sun rises), employ a smart race strategy, experience extreme discomfort (legs, lungs, bowels) and all we get is the satisfaction of beating others.  Not here at THE PR MILE!  We are offering quality awards to the top 3 female and male finishers in each and every WAVE.  No cheap crappy medals either.  We want you to have something special to honor your achievement of running your fastest mile.  You will be proud to display your PR MILE award to your other, less fortunate friends and family for them to admire and be jealous of.
