On January 25, 1964 Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman came together to create Blue Ribbon Sports, which would eventually become Nike! January 25th also happens to be Steve Prefontaine's birthday. In recognition of the anniversary of both of these important events, Nike and BlackToe Running are hosting an Urban Mile Race.
- This race has separate Elite* and Non-Elite** races so you can come and race the fastest people in the city or try your first Urban Mile race!!
- There are Women, Men, Trans/Non-Binary categories.
Elite races for all categories will have prizing including Vaporflys for the winners.
- There will be post-race refreshments including both alcohol and non-alcoholic options.
- Did someone say swag?
- If you don’t want to race, come cheer!
*You do not have to be an official elite to enter the elite category. If you want to run fast, and can do it safely, feel free to go for it!!
**Anyone can enter elite or non-elite races. If you are a first time mile racer or expect to be running 7:30 or slower for the mile then we would recommend the non-elite field. The fastest elites with be running between 4-5 minutes.
