The second annual Downtown Mile road race in Johnson City on Wednesday evening saw a larger turnout of spectators than last year and witnessed two new course records on National Running Day.
With the calendar turning to June, the summer road racing season gets underway in a hurry on the local scene.
With the atmosphere of a perennial big-time race, the inaugural Downtown Mile did not disappoint.
On Wednesday, which is Global Running Day, downtown Johnson City will play host to a unique event that allows the general public to compete alongside some of the area’s best runners.
The new Downtown Mile was announced Tuesday during a news conference at Yee-Haw Brewing Company. The race is scheduled for June 7 in Johnson City.
