One mile point to point on Manson Avenue. Gradual downhill to flat for first 1200m, gradual uphill to flat for last 400m.
The race starts at the JW Kingdom Hall and runs down Manson towards Duncan Street. The finish line is at the driveway into Emerald Lane which is just a little less than 200 metres after Duncan Street. You can see the finish all of the way from the start. This thing is like a real drag race! It is a chance to burn 100 calories as fast as you can. And there is slightly more downhill than level ground or uphill. So this might be the fastest mile that you ever run in your life. See GMAP approximation of the course.
Finish times will be recorded with a professional printer-timer device. Display clock will be set up at the finish line. Please make sure your bib number is clearly visible on your front. Final results to be posted on this website within a few days of the race.
Top male and female finisher will each receive $100 cash.
Beverages and baked goodies at the finish line for runners. Then grab a shower at AVID and join the Blackberry Festival Street Party on Marine Avenue starting at 7:00pm, then stay for the fireworks at dusk!
