About This Activity

The Sizzling Mile is a 1 mile race held on the Sacred Heart Griffin Track in Springfield, IL.  Heat 1 starts promptly at 6:00 PM.  Runners choose a heat based on their expected finish time.  It is a fun night for runners of all ages and all abilities!  You may only run in one heat and not everyone in your age group will run in the same heat.  Please register early!  If you register late, I cannot guarantee that you will be in your first heat choice.

Every finisher will receive a certificate with finish time.  There are no race t-shirts.  This is a low cost ($5 until July 16), no frill event.

2014 Prize Money - $100 for setting a new Overall Male or Female Record.

$50  for setting a new Age Group Record ($25 from The Sizzling Mile, $25 from sponsor Ray Hofman)
