The Encinitas Mile


The second annual Encinitas Mile was held March 15 along a fast, fla, USATF-certified course on Vulcan Avenue in downtown Encinitas.

ACE Brand and Nexcare Brand from 3M sponsored Race Guards, a volunteer network of trained medical professionals, to provide in-race first-aid at this year’s event.

Race Guards is providing first aid this year at more than 30 road races, obstacle course races, cycling events and triathlons all across America.

The event’s charity partner was Fresh Start Surgical Gifts, which transforms “the lives of disadvantaged infants, children, and teens suffering from physical deformities caused by birth defects, accidents, abuse, or disease through the gift of reconstructive surgery and related healthcare services.”
