Another Dam Mile Race Instructions


UPDATED weather information... As the Race Director my number one priority is the safety of the participants and volunteers.  We start setting up for the event at 4:30pm on race day and don’t finish packing up until after 8pm.  During this time period on Thursday there is supposed to be a cold front pushing south and thunderstorms will likely fire up along/ahead of it.  To quote our wonderful CBS Austin chief meteorologist Chikage Windler, “I would say it’s iffy at best for getting your event in.  I don’t think anyone would fault you for postponing and erring on the side of caution.”

Postponing to Thu, May 23 with all details remaining the same.  Please spread the word that the race is postponed two weeks.

If you can’t make it to the rescheduled date, then you will be given a credit for what you paid to use at the 2019 River Relays in July or the 2019 Georgetown Turkey Trot in November.

The Georgetown Running Club is hosting the 13th Annual Dam Mile Race on Thursday, May 23rd with the first mile heat starting at 6:30pm.  This will be a chip timed race.  Challenge your family, friends, and co-workers to come out and run on the scenic Lake Georgetown Dam.  The race will feature a timed one mile race.  Everyone gets a medal for finishing and tons of fun!  Paved, flat to downhill course that is ideal for the walker to the competitive runner and everything in between.  Great for strollers too!!  It is a very fast point to point mile!


Mile Heats

Heats will run fastest to slowest starting with a sub 7 minute mile.  Currently we are planning on sub 7, 7-9, and 9+.


Very Important

If it is a south wind then you will need to be at the starting line a mile away so allow plenty of time to get there. First heat is at 6:30pm then ~6:40 and finally ~6:50.
