Danville, CA

Have you ever wondered how fast you could run a Mile on the road? Find out at the Mile of Truth in Danville, CA. The iconic distance is unique in its ability to stoke the fire of even the most competitive runners. It’s 5,280 feet of pure, unadulterated effort!

As part of the 42nd running of the Devil Mountain Run 5K & 10K, the 3rd Mile of Truth will be contested on a USATF-certified 2-loop course in the heart of downtown Danville.

The Mile race has once again been chosen as a Pacific Association USA Track & Field Grand Prix Championship event, offering $5500 in prize money ($3300 for PA/USATF members and $2200 for elites).

Elite Open prize money breakdown per gender = $600 winner, $250, $150 and $100

New for 2019: Course Record Bonus
In addition to the $5500 overall prize purse, there will be awarded a $500 bonus for setting a course record, split evenly if broken by both genders. NOTE: Winner takes ALL – if multiple runners come in under the current course record (see below), only the winning time for men and / or women will earn the $500 course record bonus.
