About This Activity

Event Description and Location:

Join us on Saturday, August 27, 2016 @ 5pm at Linkhorne Middle School Track, 2525 Linkhorne Drive. Multiple heats of the 1 mile run will be conducted to ensure the best competition in a safe environment. Fully automatic timing will produce results accurate to the hundreth of a second.

A picnic-style social will also be included for all registered participants. Participants have the option to purchase an event t-shirt, but it is not part of the registration fee. Non-participants also have the option to purchase a ticket for the post-race picnic-style social. Tickets for non-participants can be purchased under the "Store" tab to the left.

Follow event information and updates on facebook, "The Kennedy Mile".

Background Information:

This race was created in support of Kennedy Rylin Osmulski and her family. Kennedy has a rare genetic neuromuscular disorder called Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA).

In order to join in this show of support, the Lynchburg Road Runners Club, under the direction of experienced race directors Kevin Shroyer and assisted by Malcolm Miller, will offer a unique opportunity for the Central Virginia community to come together and participate in a one mile track event.

Follow Kennedy and her family on facebook at "Kennedy's Journey With SMA".

Registration and Packet pick-up:

Pre-registration: $15/individual, $55/family of 4 or more. Discounted if completed online and add $5 for any race-day registrations.

Packet pick-up will take place at Linkhorne Middle School track on the day of the event from 2:00pm-4:30pm.


Additional donations of any amount are welcome under the donations tab, or at the event site. 100% of your donations will go directly to Osmulski family to assist in medical costs.
