The Saline Merry Mile presented by Ann Arbor Running Company and Trinity Health/IHA Medical Group/Probility is a 1 mile race/run on Michigan Avenue in downtown Saline. The race will run along the annual holiday parade route assuring that there is a cheering section for all participants! The race will start at the 4 corners (Ann Arbor Street and Michigan Avenue) and run east on Michigan Ave until a turnaround point just before Old Creek/Maple. Once the runners turn around, they will head west on Michigan Avenue until they reach the finish line, west of the 4 corners. The race is noted for its' downhill start and finish. This is the only opportunity to run on Michigan Ave as the road is only closed 2 times per year.
The race will start at 5:30pm, once the tree is lit, and will be completed no later than 6:00pm to assure that the holiday parade can start on time. This is a great run for adults and children and is a great entry level race for beginning runners as well as a competitive event for seasoned athletes. To encourage our younger runners to come out and enjoy the event, registered adults can have up to 2 runners 10 years old or younger join them on the course for free. These younger athletes, as long as they are registered, will receive all of the race giveaways (long sleeve tshirt, etc.).
In addition to Ann Arbor Running Company and Trinity Health/IHA/Probility, we would like to thank our other sponsors: Kelly Orthodontics,Powell & Udrys, Domino's, Busch’s, and The Saline Post. We ask that you support these local businesses – their willingness to help our event is greatly appreciated.
The proceeds of this race will benefit The Friends of Saline Cross Country, a non-profit organization made up of present and former parents of Saline High School cross country runners, coaches, alumni and friends of the program who raise funds to support the Saline cross country program and provide scholarships to SHS cross country runners. Even if you cannot participate, we welcome donations via this site.
