The 4th Annual Miles for MV Athletics will take place on Saturday, August 15, 2015. This year’s event will include a new 1-mile “Fun Run” for kids 12 and under, and the traditional 2-mile and 4-mile road races to help raise funds for athletic programs at the Mt. Vernon Jr. and Sr. High Schools. The courses, which all start and finish on the Mt. Vernon High School track, take participants around the school facilities and nearby neighborhoods. Each course is relatively flat, with the exception of the famous “8th Street Hill”, which provides a great view of the junior and senior high schools. Water stations will be available along the way, as well as many volunteers to help guide and cheer you on!
The 4-mile race will begin at approximately 8:00 AM.
The 2-mile race will begin shortly after the 4-mile race.
The 1-mile Fun Run will begin at approximately 8:40 AM.
Fun Run Information
This year, Miles for MV will include a 1-mile fun run course for kids 12 and under that would not like to compete in the 2-mile or 4-mile races. Those 12 and under, can still run in the competitive races and be eligible for awards in the 13 and under age group. The fun run will start and finish at the high school track. The course will be around the athletic facilities on the north side of the high school and junior high school. Our hopes with the fun run are to give youngsters the chance to participate and enjoy the event while running/walking a shorter distance. With the timing of the fun run, all children will have the opportunity to finish the race on the high school track in front of many supporters as many of the road race participants will have already finished and be around the finish line to cheer them on.
