About This Activity

Dude, it's only a mile! The Morningside Mile is Atlanta’s only competitive 1-mile race that awards its fastest runners with cash prizes. Great swag & block party. Runners of all skill levels from beginners to moms with jog strollers and competitive runners are encouraged to don their running shoes for what promises to be a fun race & great after-party. Proceeds will be donated to help save the Historic Virginia Highland fire station. For more info, visit www.MorningsideMile.com
SAVE OUR FIRE STATION!

Atlanta's oldest fire station is on the chopping block. Based on it its age, Historic Virginia Highland fire station 19 is on the City of Atlanta's replacement list for 2016. With your help, we can raise the funds to repair the firehouse and keep it in service. All race profits will be donated to the station 19 renovation fund. Learn more at vhfirecompany.com.
