Mother's Day Mile: May 10th, 2015
The 16th Annual Mother's Day Mile will be held on Sunday, May 10, 2015 with opening ceremonies beginning at 1 pm. The one mile race benefits the domestic and sexual violence programs of Advocate Safehouse Project. This premier community event attracts elite men and women competitors, recreational runners, and a host of community walk and run completers who complete the one mile course just for fun. The Mother's Day Mile is as much a celebration as it is a race. A celebration of Moms, fitness, and community. Of course, men, women, and families invited.
This is a one mile, yes just one mile, out and back race course that begins and ends at Glenwood Medical Associates, 1830 Blake Avenue, Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
