The Mid-state Mile will take place on what we have deemed The Murder Mile. The course is housed on private land just 20 minutes from Downtown Franklin . Within 1 mile and 340 feet of elevation gain per loop you’ll encounter two climbs with fast runnable sections between them an an easy downhill section through the field to the start/finish area. The course itself is an old logging road so it’s nice wide double track.

This will be a Last Man Standing event. Runners will be given 20 minutes to complete the loop and must be back in the starting corral ready to start the next loop. More on all details to come but for now all you need to know is that you have to be able to do 3 miles an hour. Sounds simple,right? It is -because it’s only a mile.
