Brooks Rehabilitation Challenge Mile 2017

Brooks Rehabilitation Challenge Mile 2017

Brooks Rehabilitation will be hosting its seventh annual Challenge Mile on Saturday, March 11 at 10 a.m. as part of the Gate River Run.

The Challenge Mile is not meant to be a competitive race, but rather a way for people of all ages and abilities to celebrate their personal accomplishments. You can walk it, jog it, wheel it, or run it! The walk will start and finish at the Jacksonville Fairgrounds downtown. Click here to see a map of the course and surrounding area.

The event is free for participants and volunteers. However, all participants, family members, caregivers, friends, and volunteers must register for the Brooks Rehabilitation Challenge Mile to be on the course. 

Please click here for the Online Registration form.

Each participant will receive an event t-shirt and a finisher medal. Packet pick-up will occur on the morning of the event. There is no packet pick-up for this event at the Gate River Run Expo.


Volunteers are needed at bus locations to check in participants, distribute numbers and shirts, assign and manage bus riders, and more. If you are interested in volunteering please sign up here.
