Our racing mission continues to be to produce affordable, hedonistically fun & athletically competitive races that also benefit some charity(-ies) with a populist & gender parity focus – for the average runner/walker (including the novices) and also for the seasoned, serious racer.
This will be the sixth presentation of Autumn “Trail” Mile or ATM, another race in beautiful River Legacy Parks, with distance markers every 1/4 mile. It appears to be the only surviving competitive Fall Mile in this neck of the woods! It should serve as a not-too-demanding return to road racing after the Thanksgiving feasts that follow the Turkey Trots. It also could be a warm-up for the Winter Run, a week later. Of course, the course will be measured correctly and the race will be timed conveniently and accurately. Of course, the age brackets will run the gamut from 6 & under to 80 & over. Of course, there will be intermediate mile markers so that you can track your progress, pun intended. Of course, the race will be fun & competitive. Of course, there will be a charity beneficiary (SafeHaven of Tarrant County).
Net proceeds from the race will benefit SafeHaven of Tarrant County – “with a mission to end family violence through safety, support, prevention and social change”.
