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.
