Saline Middle School

Saline, MI US 48176

Important:  As of 11/17/2020, this race will only allow virtual registration.  

Thank you for registering for Saline Merry Mile presented by Ann Arbor Running Company.  Friends of Saline Cross Country and the Saline Cross Country girls’ and boys’ teams appreciate your support. 

As you are aware, for the safety of all runners and volunteers, we have transitioned this event to a virtual run.  Please run at your leisure and post your results to social media (should you wish) with #salinemerrymile. 

Race packets and long sleeve shirts can be picked up on 12/5/2020 behind Heritage School (290 Woodland Dr E, Saline, MI 48176) from 2:00pm to 5:00pm.  During the same hours we will also have our course marked and open should you wish to run (at your own risk and keeping your own time).  Race packets can be picked up before or after you run the course.  The course starts at Saline Middle School (7190 N Maple Rd, Saline, MI 48176) and will finish at Heritage.  If you plan to show up to run and/or pick up your race packet, please note the following:

  • For the safety of all, please socially distance yourselves and wear a mask.  If you plan to run the course, a mask is not required while running, but we do ask that you give space to those that are not in your immediate family.
  • We will have volunteers at the start and finish of the run course.  The course will also be marked with chalk and cones.  There will be a sidewalk version of the course and a road version.  Traffic will be active on the road.  Participants may choose whichever is most comfortable for them.  A video of the course can be found here. 
  • Saline Cross Country athletes appreciate your support!  Normally, our runners would be on the course to cheer for you.  Unfortunately, our current restrictions do not permit our athletes to volunteer for team events (we have turned a lot of disappointed kids away) so they will not be there to show their appreciation in person. 
    If you are planning to run 7:00 pace or above,
  • Derek Stern will be happy to pace a limited number of people to a specific time.  We already have one request so let us know ASAP if this is of interest to you.
  • All race packets not picked up on 12/5 will be safely delivered via Saline Cross Country runners or US Mail.    

In addition to Ann Arbor Running Company, we would like to thank our other sponsors:  McNaughton & Gunn, Kelly Orthodontics, Liebherr, Powell & Udrys, Busch’s, The Saline Post, Petrock Printing and Domino’s.  We ask that you support these local businesses – their willingness to help our event is greatly appreciated.

Have a very wonderful and safe holiday season!  May all your miles be merrier in 2021!
