    Get your finisher’s medal from Olympic Champion Billy Mills!


    The Ad Astra Running BILLY MILLS 10K is just 4 weeks away! People are registering in a hurry so don't delay--this race is capped at 200 participants.

    This is an OPEN cross country race, meaning ALL AGES AND ABILITIES are encouraged to participate. Last year we had participants age 10 to 74 averaging between 17:08 and a blistering 5:08 per mile.

    We've added a HIGH SCHOOL TEAM COMPETITION this year (must have 5 runners to score; runners need not be members of school’s XC team) for the following: -- 1st Place Boys Team: $200 to program & traveling trophy -- 1st Place Girls Team: $200 to program & traveling trophy -- Most runners participating (other than winning teams): $200 to program

    We'll be giving away nearly SEVEN HUNDRED DOLLARS in Ad Astra gift certificates to age group winners; age-graded masters winners; and top-three finishers overall ($100, $50, $30 respectively).

    AND EVERY FINISHER GETS A MEDAL PRESENTED BY OLYMPIC LEGEND BILLY MILLS--plus: -- pre-race coffee -- post-race refreshments -- post-race massage -- long-sleeve, moisture-wicking race shirt

    Did we mention this race is a fundraiser? ALL PROCEEDS support running programs at Haskell University, where Billy Mills's illustrious running career began.

    There's even a VIRTUAL OPTION for folks unable to attend, whether they're running another race that day, are out of town, or never roll out of bed before noon.

    This is an AMAZING event for a FANTASTIC cause on a BEAUTIFUL course honoring the LEGENDARY Billy Mills. Sign up today!
