Route 66 Design FinalRegister Now for the 15th running of this premiere 10 kilometer race hosted annually by the Metro Milers! The best in the Midwest, this event is tailored to be enjoyed by all who participate as runners, walkers, and volunteers. This race has been the RRCA Championship 10K for the state of Illinois in those years which it was eligible.


Being a community-oriented event, a portion of the race budget is dedicated every year to benefit local not-for-profit organizations, and proceeds are used to promote physical fitness and activity in the Metro East.


Run in conjunction with the City of Edwardsville IL's Route 66 Festival, this year race day will be capped at 200 in person participants, but the race will also be offered as a virtual event.


All participants will receive their quality technical shirt (available in men's and women's cuts), goodie bag and race swag at an outdoor event after race weekend. This year there will be age group awards for those who participate in person, which will be awarded at the same swag pick up event. Items will be mailed to those unable to attend the pick up event.


Virtual registrants will be given two weeks to complete their race. Further details may be found in our Virtual Guide.
