September 27, 2014 - Fort Wayne, IN
Start - Baker Street Station / Finish - Home Plate - Parkview Field
The 4 Mile Run/Walk is our classic race to help promote people taking their first steps toward a healthier lifestyle. 4 miles is a perfect distance for those just starting out or trying to get back into shape, long enough to be challenging but short enough to be done with moderate training. This race also shares the same start, exciting stadium finish and portions of the scenic Half Marathon course. Seasoned athletes may want the challenge of running the 4 Mile race and then returning to the start to run the 10K (separate registrations required). All participants will receive a short-sleeve t-shirt and finisher's medal.
The 2013 4 Mile race was won by Austen Davenport (above left), 27, of Columbia City, Indiana (21:41). The women's winner was Jenny Robinson (above right), 33, of Fort Wayne, Indiana (27:06). Complete searchable results are available here.
