Join us for the 4th annual Downtown Run Around to benefit Mile in My Shoes! Otherwise known as a "virtual" race, the 2020 “Alone Together” Downtown Run Around now includes 1 mile, 5K and 10K event options, along with new team contests! Join us the weekend of August 23rd from wherever you are! 

NEW FORMAT: You will complete the race on your own and in your own style, so you can have all the fun of running but none of the crowds. You get to pick your location and run anytime between Friday, August 21 and Sunday, August 23, 2020 by 5 pm, then report the results to us. 

  • Register for your event: 1 mile, 5K or 10K, or tackle all three with the "MiMS Tri!"! 

  • Create a FundRacing page: Make your race even more meaningful - and win great prizes - by setting up an optional fundraising page

  • Receive your race packet including your official race shirt and race bib (register by July 20th to guarantee packet delivery before race weekend)

  • Run your race between Aug 21st and Aug 23rd. You can run whatever route you want (explore YOUR downtown, wherever you are!) or run one of our pre-designed routes (one in each city where we have a MiMS team!). Know that you are running with hundreds of others, alone but together, in solidarity with people experiencing homelessness and other barriers and those who support them!

  • Submit your results, your photos and your story! We will have awards for top finishers in all sorts of categories. 

  • Join us for the post-race party featuring an awards ceremony and member stories on Sunday, Aug 23rd at 6pm. 

New Team Event: Gather a group of friends, family or colleagues and run as one. While you may still be social distance running on August 23rd, you can be together in spirit and win prizes! Teams can be of any size, and are eligible for special prizes such as best theme, most new runners, and fastest average squad. You can even create a Team FundRacing page and aim to raise the most money for MiMS! Just make sure to indicate your team name when you register.
