Runners of all ages and skill levels will take their marks for the annual point-to-point mile long race, the Millennium Mile, this Sunday, January 1, 2012 at 2 PM. The road race will take runners downhill, starting at the Londonderry High School on Mammoth Road and ending by St. Peter’s Episcopal Church near Peabody Row.

For the past twelve years, the Millennium Mile has attracted hundreds of runners. Competitors have ranged in ages from 2 to 82 and have been Olympians, minute-milers, first time runners and walkers.

Registration will take place from 11 AM until 1:45 PM on Sunday at the High School. Online registration is open until December 31, 2011. When registering online, please be sure to indicate the appropriate school affiliation. Cost for online registration is $15 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under. Registering at the High School on Sunday will cost runners $20 for adults and $10 for children. The first 500 people to register will receive an official Millennium Mile Running Hat.

Be sure to visit the Millennium Mile website for more information or to register online.
