About The Race
This is the 36th annual edition of the Loudoun Street Mile which traverses Loudoun Street in Historic Old Town Winchester, Virginia. This years race will serve as the RRCA Regional Championship Race as well the Collegiate Running Association Championship race.
FORMAT: The race will be run in waves of approximately 50 runners each. The Top 50 men will run first at 8:30, followed by the Top 50 women at 8:40. The remaining waves will also be seeded through 6:00 for men and 7:00 for women. Those will then be followed by random waves of approximately 50 people. This will allow families to run together. See full schedule below. Each wave will start 10 minutes after the preceding wave.
Wave assignments will be posted the week prior to the race but will not become official until the day prior to the race. If you wish to be re-assigned please contact the race director. Please do not move "UP" a wave but moving "BACK" will generally not be a problem.
TOT TROT will begin approximately 10 mins. after the last runner in the final wave. Starting line for the Tot Trot will be in front of Wilkin's Family Shoe Store. Boys will run first followed by the girls.
