11th ANNUAL CARLISLE DOWNTOWN MILE

This year we are celebrating 11 years of the Carlisle Downtown Mile with race day May 19, 2022. In addition to the race on May 19th, we will have a virtual component of the race like last year. The Virtual Race will run from May 14-19, 2022.

The Carlisle Downtown Mile is a fundraiser for Employment Skills Center that provides adult education and training. All of our programs and classes are offered without charge. Those programs range from basic literacy skills; to course work, tutoring, and testing for the high school equivalency diploma; to work force development including nurse aide training, forklift training and success academy. 

Please follow all CDC and local guidance regarding social distancing and mask wearing when picking up your race packet, during pre-race and post-race activities. Thank you for your support! Come join us live or virtually! 

Awards will be given for the top three male and female finishers in each age group category. Awards will also be given to the top three finishing teams in each Team Challenge Category: Corporate, Education, Non-Profit/Government, Healthcare and Serve/Protect. In addition, there will be awards for the overall fastest female and male runners provided by Appalachian Running Company. Fun run participants age 13 and under will receive participant medals. The awards ceremony will take place after the last race has finished and results are completed.

Team Challenge Race

 

VIRTUAL – MAY 14 - 19, 2022

There was wonderful participation so we are continuing the virtual race in addition to the day of race. This will allow those to participate that are more comfortable running virtually and for those that live at a distance from Carlisle to be part of the Carlisle Downtown Mile.

For the virtual race, you may walk, run (hop, skip, etc.) on our original course, around town, on a track, in the woods, on a treadmill, in the pool, or anywhere else you want to for one mile. You can do that anytime from May 14th through May 19th. Then enter your time on RunSignUp. Results will be posted as the race progresses and the fastest time in each race category (age and gender, or team) wins bragging rights. We will use the honor system for reporting times.

The Virtual Mile is $10 for children 13 and under and $15 for anyone age 14 and over.  Virtual teams are $75 to sign up.  All prices will remain the same throughout the event. 

These times will not compete with the race day times on the High Street certified course.  All participants will receive a 10th Anniversary Carlisle Downtown Mile race shirt. Age groups and team categories are the same as the in-person mile.

Uploading Your Times
Participants will be able to record their time, track other racers, and challenge themselves. And remember, this is based on the honor system. No need to upload data to Strava or record your mile with a GPS. No one will be looking to DQ you. Once you are registered, you will be able to upload your time using the following steps:

Step 1: Make sure you are logged into RunSignUp (use the email you used to register).
Step 2: Click on the RESULTS then click on the blue box that says SUBMIT VIRTUAL RESULTS. Search for your name.
Step 3: Add your time and save your results. It might take a few minutes to update in the overall results but you can refresh the page and wait. That's it! You are done.
