The Meatball Mile for MSA is a 1-Mile run in which the runner who comes closest to his or her predicted finish will win a $1000 gift card to the mall. The race starts at 9:00am. It is sponsored by Mima's Meatballs and More.

“We thought this would be a terrific event because it doesn’t matter how fast you are,’’ said Megan Searfoss, co-owner of Ridgefield Running Company and one of the event co-sponsors. “You can run a 6 minute Mile or a 12 minute Mile, and you’ll still have a chance to win.”
