Metro Milers organize and execute 2016 Route 66 10K

The 10th running of the Route 66 10K took place Saturday June 11, 2012.       This race hosted by the Metro Milers is a favorite of many runners.  The race features.....(Continued)

spirit stations to keep runners motivated and aid stations with water, Gatorade, iced towels and enthusiastic volunteers.  Runners celebrate their finish in the finisher’s village where a band entertains and plenty of post-race snacks are enjoyed.

On Wednesday nights leading up to the race, the Metro Milers and the local running community run the course.   This provides the opportunity for runners to become familiar with the route before the race.   The course is a combination of local streets and the shaded bike paths.



The 10K distance is unique and provides that “next step” many new runners are looking for.  To assist the runners looking to get into the 10K distance a 12 week training program is offered that includes race entries and coached runs. 



Metro Milers that completed the race include;


  • Erica H.
  • Jay H.
  • Kim H.
  • Ann K.
  • Kip L.
  • Jennie Z.
  • Rachel K.
  • Susan K.

The 10K is held in conjunction with the city of Edwardsville’s Route 66 Festival which takes place the second weekend in June.    

We look forward to seeing everyone next year!
