It’s Just A Mile
EVERYONE WILL GO TO A WAITLIST AND WE WILL START CONFIRMING ENTRIES JANUARY 5th. Past participants from Mid-State and then Tennessee Mile will be selected first. Empty slots then will be filled in order from the waitlist.
The Mid-state Mile will take place on what we have deemed The Murder Mile. The course is housed on private land just 20 minutes from Downtown Franklin . Within 1 mile and 340 feet of elevation gain per loop you’ll encounter two climbs with fast runnable sections between them an an easy downhill section through the field to the start/finish area. The course itself is an old logging road so it’s nice wide double track.
This will be a Last Man Standing event. Runners will be given 20 minutes to complete the loop and must be back in the starting corral ready to start the next loop. More on all details to come but for now all you need to know is that you have to be able to do 3 miles an hour. Sounds simple,right? It is -because it’s only a mile.
We will have a tented area for runners to have a chair and small cooler next to the starting corral. There will be a separate area for crew and camping.
If you are a Race Director please contact me before registering . We have a special deal for you to show our gratitude .
-You must be in the starting corral at the start of the next loop.
-You must leave the corral at the start and proceed to take two steps past the starting line.
-Runners coming in after the 20 minute limit will be eliminated.
—No runner may accept aid while on the course
DECLARING A WINNER -
1. If two runners start the last loop and one does not complete it within the time limit, then the one who completed it is declared the winner ONLY AFTER he starts and completes the next loop a solo loop “VICTORY LAP” within the 20 minute time frame.
2. If two runners complete the loop, but only one chooses to continue, then the last runner must go out and complete a VICTORY LAP within the time limit in order to be declared the winner.
3. If the last runner cannot complete the loop in the time limit then there will be no winner

VERY SERIOUS AND POSSIBLY THE NUMBER ONE RULE
We love our furry friends as much as you do but there are other pets that call this home and they aren’t looking to share. If you bring your furry friend you will be asked to take them back to their home. Please don’t make us do that. DO NOT BE THAT PERSON. Runners inform your friends, family and crew of this rule. It is nonnegotiable.
To be guaranteed a shirt you must register before June 1st
We DO NOT issue refunds or rollovers.

Doesn’t matter if you have your cousin’s shotgun wedding or your best friend’s dog’s bridal shower to attend if you cannot make the event your money is donated to the cause for those able to attend.
All dollar dollar bills collected go to hosting these events and course and property maintenance. We do not charge outlandish fees so know your hard earned cash is going back into the community and keeping the Jones Family Property ready for visitors.
