|About||The Meadow Mile 5k, 1 mi, and "kids' .5k" run/walk is open to all fitness levels and ages. All participants have a chance to win a door prize. Join us!!|
|Mission||The Meadow Mile's mission is to promote fitness while raising money for improvements to the town of Meadow.|
The Meadow Mile's mission is to promote fitness while raising money for improvements to the small town of Meadow. Newborn to age 90+ come out to walk, run or volunteer. Community members and surrounding towns join us to run or walk a 1 mile or 5k course to raise money for a project that will improve our small town. Children up to age 7 are invited to run our "Kid's K", which is a 0.5 mile run down the block and back. A $15 registration fee per participant ensures entry into the selected race, as well as a t-shirt. Many towns and states are represented at The Meadow Mile each year. The route passes through many sites of Meadow: One being the old Meadow depot and blacksmith shop, a registered Texas Historical site. Runners will also pass by the Meadow Museum, City Hall, The Meadow Music Hall, Meadow Post Office, Meadow ISD, and to the "top of the hill" (a not so fond memory for many Meadow ISD alumni, of a workout requirement during high school athletics).
In 2009, 200 registrations helped raise $3,500 to contribute to the overall cost of a new electronic marquee at the school. The marquee is located in front of Meadow ISD and keeps the communty abreast of events invovling the school, as well as the commmunity. It also runs a constant message that "Meadow ISD is again a RECOGNIZED school because of the hard work of students, staff, and parents". The weekend of The Meadow Mile, business sponsors are dsiplayed on the electronic marquee for participants and community members to see, during the event, which sponsors are supporting our community efforts. Our town and the citizens of Meadow utilize numerous businesses in Lubbock, Brownfield, Levelland and even Meadow, and this sponsorship is a visible way for businesses to say "thank you to Meadow for supporting us".
The 2010 Meadow Mile brought in $4,520 to be split between The Meadow Musical and The Jessie Mendez Medical Benefit Fund. The Meadow Musical was created in 1972 by the Ashburn family and local donations.
