(August 24, 2010) — The early registration deadline for the 2010 Magnificent Mile Race (magmilerace.com) is August 30.

Registration options and fee structures are available at magmilerace.com/ feesdeadlines.php. Fees for participants under the age of 15 will remain at the discounted rate of $10 through race day.
The fifth annual Magnificent Mile Race is a fundraising event with a competitive and recreational run/walk, kids' races, entertainment, food and other fun activities. Proceeds will benefit the Spastic Paraplegia Foundation (www.sp-foundation.org), a nonprofit dedicated to finding a cure for rare upper motor neuron disorders. In its first four years, nearly 2,300 participants have helped raise more than $150,000 for research into upper motor neuron diseases.
"We like to offer our discounted registration fee as a gesture of gratitude to our valued participants,” says Sarah Roberts-Witt, organizer and inspiration behind The Magnificent Mile Race. “We are so thankful for their continued support in making our event a success.”
The Magnificent Mile Race is the first of the eight-race Second Empire Grand-Prix Fall Series and serves as the USATF North Carolina State one-mile championship. It is also part of Endurance Magazine's Race Without a Trace initiative, which encourages sustainable and environmentally conscious activities, and the NC-USATF-Endurance Magazine 2010 Long Distance Running Championship Series.
