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 every other Tuesday of the Summer (i.e., 6/18, 7/2, 7/16, 7/30, 8/13, and 8/27) 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.  After the one mile race, join us for a block party on Camelford Court (down the street from Centennial High School).

  • What to Bring$2 per person for entry fee

  • What to Do:  Eat pizza and play games (cornhole, basketball, etc.) in the court

  • Inclement Weather Policy:  If it's raining, we'll likely cancel the block party.  We'll let you know!
