The Main Street Mile, a series of 1-mile races highlighting the state’s Main Street Program, will hit the streets of Sylva Friday, June 3.
Sylva’s Main Street Mile course will start in Sylva’s Bridge Park, cross Grindstaff Cove Road and take a left on Central Street. The figure-8 route then takes runners to Brendle, Storybrook Lane and Bartlett Street.
Sylva’s leg of the Main Street Mile is being held in conjunction with the “Concert on the Creek” series held at Bridge Park. Race awards will be presented during the concert’s first intermission. Blue Ridge Multi Sports, Main Street Mile’s race producers, will donate $2 from every race entry to the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce’s Concerts on the Creek Series.
Start times for a men’s and women’s heat will be staggered by approximately 15 minutes. Awards will be presented to the top 10 overall finishers. Results from each of the Main Street Mile Series races will be combined and calculated to determine the overall series winners. Runners must participate in at least three Main Street Mile events to be eligible for series awards.
Registration is $15 in advance or $20 day-of. www.MainStreetMiles.com or 828.400.5868.
