About This Activity

Welcome to the Rocket Mile.  This competitive one mile road race is designed to provide runners with a fast race course in a family friendly environment.  Our race course is freshly paved, flat, and only has three total turns.

We provide four separate races:

  • 2:00 pm Men's Mile
  • 2:20 pm Women's Mile
  • 2:40 pm Boy's Mile
  • 3:05 pm Girl's Mile.  

This means your entire family can race!  Not only that you can be a runner AND a spectator at the same event!  Having four races also means a very exciting finish line with literally hundreds of people there to cheer at the finish of each race.  This is a race you will not want to miss!
