Meijer 14th-Mile Celebrate Victory Bash
Join us after your race on Saturday on Kirby Ave., just outside Memorial Stadium. Food trucks will be on hand to treat you to some of our area's local flavors! Stay tuned for a list of participating food trucks.
Your race entry includes one ticket for a beer, wine, or cider, with your race number as your ticket (for entrants 21 and older). Non-alcoholic beverages will also be available, including Busch NA.
Aside from food trucks and live music, there will also be activities for the kids!
Wooden Nickel Program
Every year, we distribute Wooden Nickels to runners at the Health & Fitness Expo. These nickels are good for discounts at many area businesses from April 28–May 6, 2023. Whether you're looking for a treat before the race, something to eat after, or some good deals on shopping spots around town, we have something for you!
Stay tuned for a list of participating businesses and their deals in the coming weeks!
