The 13th Annual Mother’s Day Mile will be held on Sunday, May 13, 2012 with opening ceremonies beginning at 1 pm. The one mile race benefits the domestic and sexual violence programs of the Advocate Safehouse Project of Garfield County Colorado. This premier community event attracts elite men and women competitors, recreational runners, and a host of community walk and runners 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. All pre-registered participants receive a signature eco bag filled with goodies; a finish line rose, a piece of homemade apple pie ala mode, and a chance to win age group awards crafted by HIV + women and men of Imani Workshops and Mfangano Island, Kenya. Everyone is invited to shop under the Big Tent at our enormous Gift Basket Silent Auction. Save your Mother’s Day shopping until then and find the best bargains in town. It’s a double gift as all proceeds go to the Advocate Safehouse Project. The one mile race, yes it’s only one mile, is held in four waves including a non-timed wave. Children under 14 begin with Wave 1, men and women under 40 go in Wave 2, men and women 40 and older go in Wave 3, and all non-timed families, strollers, walkers, go in Wave 4. (sorry, but Fido must stay home at this race). The race begins at Glenwood Medical Associates, there is an Aid Station at the half mile mark, and returns back to GMA. Thanks again to US Bank of Glenwood Springs for sponsoring our electronic bib chips. Everyone gets a bib whether they pre-register or not… the goody bag is what is in question! You asked we answered! We will add top THREE Overall Men and Women to our age group award categories. Categories begin with Under 8 and end with over 80. And as usual, we will give awards to the fastest Mom, Grandmom, Great Grandmom; and Fastest Overall Male First Responder and Female First Responder.
