Some people find their zen while running long distances. If that’s not your thing, or if you want to switch it up a bit, the 2016 Memphis Mini-thon is right up your alley. The 2.62-mile race will be held on Saturday, July 16th, 2016 at Tiger Lane beginning at 9 a.m and will consist of a mostly flat course. The entry fee is $10 and 100% of proceeds go to benefit Youth Villages.
Everyone gets a finisher’s medal and a 2.62 oval decal to show everyone just how much you love running. There will also be special awards for the top 3 overall finishers in both the running category and the Big Wheel category. A post-race celebration is in the works that will include live music and giveaways, and runners 21+ can partake of free beer.
