Get the Bling!

Male & Female Competitive Mile runners receive a finisher's medal 

It's a Bell Ringer Day!

While we expect a great field of elite runners, the Oak City Mile is open to all runners.  It is a great opportunity to run your goal mile or even set your PR.  After crossing the finish line head to the green Precision Race "Results" tent and check your time on our touchscreen Results Kiosk.  

If you met your goal time, ring the PR Bell.
 If you set your personal 1 mile record, ring the PR Bell twice!  You may not have broken the 4-minute mile, but ringing the Precision Race PR Bell will let your friends know that you ran your best! We'll have a special memento of the occasion available for all of our PR bell ringers.

The race benefits the 501(c)3 non-profit ALS Association Jim "Catfish" Hunter chapter and the fight against neurological diseases.

Please join us as the tradition continues!
