The Macklind Mile presented by Smoothie King is more than just getting outside…you can run fast or stroll slow…you can race to compete or move to complete. There will be music, food and activities following the short one mile course which makes it perfect for hanging out in the streets of South City St Louis with other kids and kids-at-heart. Keep in touch with us on our Facebook page.
If this is your first time at the Macklind Mile, know this: it’s a one mile distance that everyone can do regardless of running or walking, and the post-race party is just as important as the distance covered! You can come to run the downhill, one mile course to try and set a personal record, or you can walk it with your family pet – but either way you’re partying at the finish line!
THERE ARE FIVE RUNNING EVENTS
EVENT ONE – 8:00 AM – Recreational Wave (walkers, strollers, pets, non-competitive)
EVENT TWO – 8:35 AM – Men’s Competitive Race
EVENT THREE – 8:50 AM – Women’s Competitive Race
EVENT FOUR – 9:10 AM – Elite Race**
EVENT FIVE – 9:25 AM – Kids’ Quarter Mile Dash
Award Ceremony and Street Party to follow! (music, beer, food, smoothies, activities and more!)
The Macklind Mile presented by Smoothie King is DOWNHILL! This makes it fun for everyone and SUPER FAST for those wanting to set a personal record for their fastest mile.
The event starts at Macklind and Sublette, just southwest of the YMCA parking lot. Runners and walkers will head straight DOWN Macklind Avenue before finishing in front of Big River Running Company on Devonshire and Macklind. The course drops 73 feet in elevation from start to finish with the third quarter of the race seeing the biggest drop. The race finishes with a roughly 300 meter straightaway so you will have to earn that fast finish!
