Downtown Mile

May 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Downtown Mile is back, and registration is now open.

The Carlisle Downtown Mile is a one-mile USA Track and Field certified course on High Street in Carlisle, PA. The one-mile race begins at the Subway Car Wash near the corner of High and Orange Streets and ends near the corner of High Street and Court House Avenue. In addition to the race on May 16, we will have a virtual option this year. The Virtual Race will run from May 11-16.

Awards will be given to the top three male and female finishers in each age group category. Awards will also be given to the top three finishing teams in each Team Challenge Category: Corporate, Education, Non-Profit/Government, Healthcare, and Serve/Protect. In addition, there will be awards for the overall fastest female and male runners provided by Appalachian Running Company. Fun run participants aged 13 and under will receive participant medals. The awards ceremony will take place after the last race has finished and the results are completed.

Participants 21 and older can enjoy a post-race beer garden, and younger participants can stop by the Kids Alley after the race for fun games and prizes.
