Mile events for every age, even your dog

Spirit Run provides running and walking events for all ages. It hosts competitive races and celebrates winners with an array of prizes. It also offers walking events for individual adults and families to enjoy together. In this “spirit,” Spirit Run presents multiple mile events for adults, kids, families and dogs.

Mile options for families

Spirit Run hosts the Family Mile for parents and children to run or walk together. Fortunately, by participating together, families save on entry fees. Rather than paying the individual entry fee for each family member, a family who registers for the Family Mile pays a single, discounted price. For example, the Family Mile entry fee for a family of five is 40% less than if each member registered separately. For details about the Family Mile and where and when it takes place, visit the Family Events and Schedule and Maps pages at www.newportspiritrun.org.
