The third edition of the Reno Mile will be contested on Reno’s most famous street, the main downtown drag, Virginia Street, on Saturday morning, September 12, and is part of the 3rd annual Reno Running Festival presented by Hometown Health.
All Reno Mile participants will receive a commemorative coin, a goodie bag, one entry into the Reno Running Fest Raffle and post-race refreshments at the Finish Line Party. With one registration, you may participate in as many as 3 heats (see the below).
Event schedule (subject to change so check the event website for the most current schedule):
Overall top 3 men & women will receive prizes. Top 3 in each of the Age Group Heats also will be recognized. All top finishes will be determined by gun time not chip time.
The course is an out-and-back route on Virginia Street so participants will run under the famed Reno Arch TWICE.
Reno Running Fest Double Dare Medal
Participants who complete the Reno Mile AND the Journal Jog the next day will earn a special medal recognizing their achievement of two races in two days.
The Reno Mile also is a BBTM Featured Event, showcasing America's best Mile events.
