The North Avenue Mile welcomes runners of every ability level for a fun, level race starting at Paine Cottage and ending at City Hall. It’s great for kids, too. I am a terrible runner, but always enjoy the North Avenue Mile. If I can do it, anyone can. Register here.
UPDATE (May 13): Unfortunately, it looks like the North Avenue Mile will not occur this year as planned, due to some registration challenges. I still extend thanks to the organizers for their efforts, and hope that the race can return in 2020.
