_ The 2020 Backward Mile:
Run or walk one mile in reverse. Backward Mile is a fun family run for a great cause. Runners start at the finish line and end at the start line. Time counts backward, runners dress backward and run backward. Instead of receiving a finisher medal, runners turn in an old race medal. Backward Mile collects an old race medal from each participant, then donates those medals to Medals4Mettle. This is a great opportunity for runners and the community to really impact the lives of those living with chronic or debilitating illnesses. Featuring Guinness World Record holder Aaron Yoder running a Backward Mile in 5:54.
Mission of Backward Mile We believe runners and our community can positively impact the lives of those living with chronic or debilitating illnesses. By collecting a finisher race medal from each participant, we can donate them to Medals4Mettle for adults and children demonstrating the mettle to bravely face their challenges. Our one mile fun run in reverse is paying it forward to those running a more difficult race they never chose to run.
