The Centennial Mile Challenge


The Centennial Mile, presented by the Howard County Striders, is a family-oriented one mile race through the Centennial neighborhoods for beginners, competitors, and everyone in between.


The Centennial Mile Challenge rewards Bigfoot Endurance members for participating in The Centennial Mile.  Join us at 7pm on 6/14, 6/28, 7/12, 7/26, 8/2, and 8/16 (Tuesdays) at The Centennial Mile located at 10025 Century Drive, Ellicott City, MD 21042 (in the neighborhood across from Centennial High School).  We'll all be wearing Bigfoot Endurance apparel in support of Parkinson's research.

  • When:  Sign-up starts at 7pm; race begins at 7:30pm; races are scheduled for 6/14, 6/28, 7/12, 7/26, 8/2, and 8/16 (Tuesdays)

  • Where:  10025 Century Drive, Ellicott City, MD 21042 (in the neighborhood across from Centennial High School)

  • Who:  Kids and strollers are welcome (but dogs are not)

  • What to Bring$2 per person for entry fee (with a maximum of $5 per family)

  • What to Do:  Don't forget to (i) register every participant (including kids) at the race and (ii) fill out a card at the finish for every participant (including kids).  This is very important for the race directors.  Otherwise, it will take them a long time to compile the race results.

A commemorative marble coaster will be awarded to one male and one female winner, determined according to the following scoring process:
