About This Activity

THE PR MILE race is just what the name says, a ONE MILE, chip timed race with quarter mile splits on a unique, slowly descending, USTAF certified course that whould allow you to run your fastest, PERSONAL RECORD mile- ever!

Let's not kid ourselves, it is all about speed.  Whether your preferred distance is a 5K or a marathon, we all really want to know how fast we can run a single mile.  Most of us have probably run mile repeats on the track for training.  This is totally different-not even close.  We are offering you the rare opportunity to run just a single mile-all fast as your legs and lungs will allow!

More than that, you will be competing with your peers in our unique wave format.

Here is how we designed the race:

We will be running 10 year age group waves every 7 minutes.  However, if you are an elite ( or just think you are), you can sign up for our "elite" wave.  Every 7 minutes, beginning with age 70+ men and women, the clocks will be reset and the gun will go off.  Is beer drinking your activity of choice?  If so, don't be ashamed.  Prove your beer drinking worth and sign up for the wave that has the most fun, THE BEER MILE!

Eventually, we will work our way down to the elite wave and then the grand finale wave, THE BEER MILE!  After the racing is over it will be time to celebrate everyone's PR performances with a beer (or another beer) and BBQ Bash hosted by the best BBQ place in the Midwest, Chuck's Southern Comfort!

Does it get any better than this?  Yes, it does.  In my mind, as a veteran runner and racer, price should be relative to distance so all this for the low, low price of $24.95!!!  For an even better deal, if you sign up for the PR Mile, you can also sign up for our sister race, The Waterfall Glen Xtreme 10, and get a discount for both races!  Sweet!!!
