Meet of the Miles – GP #1
Meet of the Miles – MDRA Grand Prix Race #1
January 9th 2017 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Registration for the Meet of Miles is on race day only in the University Minnesota Fieldhouse. The fee is $5.00 for adults and $2.00 for students. All ages and abilities are welcome. You sign up for a group (a heat) of 10 to 20 runners based on the approximate time you expect to run. The fastest heat starts first at 6:00 pm and we continue as quickly as possible to each succeeding slower heat. Roughly, those running under 5 minutes per mile will start near 6:00 pm, around 6 minutes per mile will start near 7:00 pm, and so on. There are usually around 10 heats and we are all finished by 8:00 pm.
Since the race is indoors, we will not cancel due to weather conditions unless the entire campus has been closed. If the weather is rough and traffic is a major issue, we may delay the start of the first heat a small amount to allow a few more minutes to arrive.
Public parking is available in the ramp on University Avenue just east of the Fieldhouse and the ramp located on 17th Avenue north of University Avenue and 4th Street.
The Meet of Miles is the first event of the MDRA Grand Prix series of races. You have an option to sign up for the Grand Prix with MDRA personnel at the event. That fee is $5.00 and separate from the Meet of Miles entry fee. There is no requirement to sign up for the Grand Prix to run the Meet of Miles.

We look forward to seeing you at the Meet of Miles!
