1-mile loop around Martini Corner
The Ozanam Guild Martini Mile is a 1-mile loop around beautiful, historic Union Hill and the Martini Corner Entertainment District.
Teams of four will have one runner at a time complete the 1-mile course. With the use of a "baton" (provided by each team), runners will make their relay-style exchanges at the start/finish transition area on 31st Street in front of the Velvet Dog. Once the 4th/final runner crosses the finish line (on the north side of 31st Street), the team's official time will be recorded.
Competitive and recreational runners welcome. Awards divisions consist of male, female, co-ed, and corporate. Chip timing will be used for accurate race results.
A post race event will be hosted by the Velvet Dog and Martini Corner, with drink specials and live music for all race participants.
Runners and volunteers will receive a race t-shirt.
Proceeds benefit the Ozanam Guild's volunteer and fiscal contributions to the students and programs at Ozanam.
Unable to participate as a runner or volunteer, but still want to help make a difference in the lives of the students at Ozanam?
