Bonus also offered to winning woman for breaking 4:25
Race organizers in conjunction with Crown City Mile’s Presenting Sponsor, Milestone Running, are offering $1000 to any man who wins and breaks 4 minutes in the mile and/or woman who wins and breaks 4:25. The Crown City Mile is in its 2nd year and is the newest addition to Coronado’s 45th annual 4th of July Run. The Crown City Classic features a 12K (7.4 miles on 7/4), 5K, the Crown City Mile and a kids ½ mile.
After runners complete their 12K or 5K runs, crowds will congregate on Orange Avenue for Coronado’s annual Independence Day parade. Just prior to the parade taking off, the Crown City Mile will start at 9:20am. It is estimated that 10,000+ spectators are on-hand, lining the grass median on Orange Avenue for this event. Divisions include Men’s, Women’s, and Youth (ages 17 and under). Prize money will also be awarded to Men’s and Women’s top three.
“There is something special about the mile, it is a test of speed, and an ultimate measure of fitness. We want to see this event grow and be known as one of the fastest road miles in the United States.” Said Jamie Monroe, event Race Director. “The opportunity to run down Orange Avenue and represent the sport of running as the unofficial first float in San Diego’s largest Independence Day Parade is also a great perk!”
All Crown City Mile runners will receive a custom race singlet with entry and are encouraged to wear it and represent “4th of July town USA- Coronado!”
