We have expanded our team challenge to make the Downtown Mile a great opportunity to have some friendly team competition with other organizations similar to yours. It is also a wonderful team building event due to the short distance of the race. Wear your organization t-shirts and let the community see you out there!  
Within each Team Category (Healthcare, Non-Profit/Government, Protect & Serve, Business/Corporate, Education, and Friends & Family) a first place award will also be given.

Early pickup for race packets/bibs: Wednesday, May 15th from 11am - 5:30pm at the Appalachian Running Company located at 290 E. Pomfret Street in Carlisle.
