Feeling fast? Prove it!

The Grand Blue Mile's competitive division is the perfect option for amateur runners looking to test their mile time against the best in the Midwest.

While all ages and abilities are welcome to participate in the competitive division, it's especially recommended for sub-8-minute milers and those running for new PRs.
