The Winston-Salem Rescue Mission will host the first ever Mission Mile Road Race on Saturday, July 31, at 8:00 AM. This exciting event will be a fun and healthy activity for the entire family. Texas Pete and Warco Enterprises are the major sponsors of this unique event whose course will travel through the heart of the beautiful Arts District area of downtown Winston-Salem.
The morning will feature three separate races based on level of skill- beginner, intermediate, and elite. There will be goody bags that include an official race t-shirt, custom water bottle and much more given to each participant. A live DJ, food, beverages, prizes, and awards will all be a part of the festivities as well. The race course will be monitored by the W-S Police Department, and the race event itself will be under the professional management of Off 'n Running of Greensboro.
This is a family-friendly event that will help generate funds for resident services and the Rescue Mission's Back-to-School Backpack Program which helps under-privileged children in our community.
