Fun Run/Walk!

Join us for the Chilly Chili Mile, in which participants can choose to walk or run at top speed or at a comfortable pace. Our one-loop course will start and finish at the Philip Heit Center for Healthy New Albany. This event is conducted by Healthy New Albany, the same team that brings you the New Albany Walking Classic. This event promises to warm you up. The faster you walk or run, the sooner you can enjoy a bowl of chili and cornbread.
