The Mine Mile Fun Run

The last Mine Mile started at 10:45 a.m. on November 19, 2011 in Crystal City, Missouri. The entire race took place within the mine and was not timed. It was more about enjoying the adventure.

Walkers and athletes of all ages were welcome. Because the floor of the mine is made of sand, tennis shoes or track flats were recommended, as was bringing a towel and extra socks for afterwards. Most of the course was dry, but there are a few places where ground water seeps in that created some soggy sand.
