    This is my second year doing the Millennium Mile so my first review has more details. I had a three day weekend so decided to visit my parents in NH and do the race again. The first year I did it was 2021 so there were covid protocols but this year was a normal mass start. The race starts at an elementary school. It is very popular so while there is parking I would recommend arriving 45 mins to an hour early to make parking not stressful. There is bib pick-up and porta potties at the start. You are assigned a number and bib pickup is pretty efficient for the race you also get a winter hat which is adequate swag for a short, cheap race. Start is well organized and they have signs by pace and there is an announcer. I was worried it might be really congested but everyone did a good job lining up so everyone was running the same pace around me. There is an entire street closed off so there is also plenty of space. It is net downhill and really fast but there is a slight incline at the end. There are also 1/4 mile markers. I was hoping to do under 9 but I lost a little time on the incline but was still faster than the mile race I did in August and had run faster than any mile in 2022. While there are a lot of people chasing fast time there are also a lot of kids and walkers having fun so it is a good race for everyone. The finish line has an arch and you walk back which is nice for a cool down. There is water, powerade and snacks (granola, bananas, etc) at the school. One minor critique is I would have liked water at the finish line to drink on my cooldown walk. Overall this is a fun, fast way to start the New Year.

    This is an annual downhill one mile race produced by Millenium Running on New Years Day. My dad runs this race every year but this was the first year since I started running that I spent New Years in NH so it was my first opportunity to run it. Packet pick up is either at the store or the morning of the race. We got it morning of race. Parking was very easy at the school where the race starts. Packet included bib and a winter hat as the swag item this year. Would have preferred a medal or a shirt but it was the nicest winter hat I’ve gotten as race swag and solid swag for a short, cheap race. Start line procedure was same as other Millenium Running events during covid with groups of 99 based on expected time with 2 runners sent off every 10 seconds. Timing was very precise today and I started the exact time I was supposed to. While I miss the excitement of a mass start I actually thought this sort of “time trial” start worked better for a mile race as the course was not crowded and you didnt have to weave around anyone and could just concentrate on pace. We also lucked out with weather and it was perfect (well as perfect as NH in January which is above freezing and sunny). The course starts at the top of a hill and is (almost) all downhill. The course was changed a little this year. Normally there is one turn so the entire course is downhill or flat. This year to accommodate the longer time the course had to be open and allow only half the road to be closed, it was straight down one street but there was a teeny, tiny uphill near the end but overall over 100 feet of elevation drop in 1 mile. It was a very fast race. I really wanted to finish under 8 minutes and I did it! I ran so fast I honestly can’t remember what the course looked like since I was just concentrating on pace. No medal at finish line but its such a short race it’s not really necessary. You then have to walk back which is a nice cool down. There was water, powerade and some interesting maple water (would recommend) for post race refreshments along with some chips, bananas and other grab and go snacks. Overall this is fun, fast and well-produced race to start the New Year. As it is only 1 mile and is an easy mile it is family friendly and friendly for people of all abilities. There were plenty of walkers in the last group. Will definitely do this every year I am in NH for New Years.
