The Macklind Mile is DOWNHILL! This makes it fun for everyone and SUPER FAST for those wanting to set a personal record for their fastest mile.
The event starts at Macklind and Sublette, just south of the YMCA parking lot. Runners and walkers will head straight DOWN Macklind Avenue before finishing in front of Big River Running Company on Devonshire and Macklind. The course drops 73 feet in elevation from start to finish with the third quarter of the race seeing the biggest drop. The race finishes with a roughly 300 meter straightaway so you will have to earn that fast finish!
