Join Playmakers and Meridian Township to kickoff the Celebrate Meridian Township Festival by running or walking a mile! We will be shutting down Central Park Drive behind the Meridian Mall and taking over the street to walk or race a mile! Check out the new categories and join your friends and neighbors for the Meridian Mile and to raise money for the Meridian Cares program.
Our Sponsors make it special!
Hoka One One will provide awards for all events
Jimmy Johns gourmet sandwiches will be served to all participants
Soldan's Pet Supplies will be on site and provide a "Doggie Bag" to our canine participants
Orange Insoles will be provided to the first 100 interested participants
Note: The exact start time of each "event" at the Meridian Mile may adjust slightly due to the number of participants registered. A final list of events will be published in mid June.
Location: Check in at the Central Park Pavillion, 5151 Marsh Road, Okemos, MI 48864. The race will be on Central Park Drive between Marsh and Okemos roads.
Please Note: Meridian Mile may be run in heats (sections) of 50 to 80 people if necessary. The heats will be broken down by gender first and then by entry time with the faster heats competing first. What does this mean? Basically, females will race females and males will race males. Similar entry times will be in the same heats with the same gender. The exact start times of each heat will depend on the amount of people entered in the race and their "predicted" finish time within the registration process.
Awards: to top 3 in each age group for the men's and women's mile + top 3 men and women overall in the walk, dog run/walk, and stroller run/walk.
Age Groups: 13 & Under, 14-18, 19-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44,
45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80 & over.
Packet pickup will only be available Race Day. If registering for an event on Race Day, please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your event to ensure registration and to help with the setup of Race Heats.
