GIE Media’s Miles for Manufacturing 5k run is held at various AMT events and benefits manufacturing education programs.
Miles for Manufacturing began in Cincinnati, Ohio when a group attending GFMC 2013 decided to go for a run. The run turned into a race to the finish and then a few post-run refreshments. The idea quickly evolved to make the run bigger, better and Miles for Manufacturing was born! Since the inaugural run in Chicago at IMTS 2014, Miles for Manufacturing has continued to grow and move throughout the country. 100% of the proceeds from each Miles for Manufacturing 5k goes towards equipment needed to further manufacturing education.
