The Navy Mile is a one-mile race that is held in heats, meaning that racers are grouped by age and ability, and run their mile according to that grouping. All heats are for the full one-mile course on Pennsylvania Avenue.
Here is how to choose The Navy Mile race registration category best for you:
Family Fun Run/Walk: This race registration category is for those who would like to run with their family members of various ages, such as parents with their children, and are not particularly concerned with their one-mile race time. All minors under the age of 13 should be registered in this category and should be accompanied by an adult runner. Adults can run in both the Family Fun Run/Walk and the Open race. Register first for the Open race and you will be given the option to add the Family Fun Run for an additional, discounted $5. Family Fun Run registration on its own is a discounted $10, with the option to add a race t-shirt for an additional $10.
Open: The Open race category is for running enthusiasts who are eager to have their one-mile race time officially recorded and considered for placement and awards. Racers will be placed in heats according to their age and gender. See the schedule of heats below for detailed categorization. Open registration includes an official race t-shirt (size preference subject to availability). Open registration prices gradually increase up until race day and are capped at 300 participants per heat, so register today to secure a low price and your spot!
Active Duty: Active Duty racers will compete in their age and gender Open heats, receiving all benefits of the Open race, but receive a discounted race registration of $20.
Paralympic: Paralympic and Wounded Warrior racers, both those with and without wheelchairs, will race in heats with their mile times officially recorded and considered for placement and awards. To enter these heats, please contact us.
Push-up contest: In the spirit of solidarity with our Navy and Coast Guard wounded warriors, we are challenging Navy Mile participants to a push-up contest. How many push-ups (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Get-JgZvI0A) can you complete in 2 minutes? Awards will be given by age category to the top male and female participants. Test your total fitness while supporting the Navy Safe Harbor Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing essential assistance to seriously wounded, ill or injured Sailors and Coast Guardsmen and their families. [If you want to run the mile and participate in the push-up contest, then upon completion of the registraition for the race you can add the push-up contest].
