Event Information

Fun Run/Walk

Join us for the 5th Chilly Chili Mile in which participants can choose to walk or run at top speed or at a comfortable pace. Our Annual one-loop course will start and finish at the Philip Heit Center for Healthy New Albany. This event is conducted by Healthy New Albany, the same team that brings you the New Albany Walking Classic. Warm up immediately after your mile by moving indoors to the Philip Heit Center where you can warm up in our lounge amid a warm fireplace consuming Wendy’s chili topped with cheese. Cornbread also awaits you. Strollers welcome as we encourage families to join in the fun!
