Race Information

Marshmallow Mile
Peoria, AZ
Maricopa County
Feb 24, 2020 - Monday
1M novelty run
  • Details from event's RunSignUp.com listing:

    The Marshmallow Mile is 1 Mile of absolute fun.

    Here's the Scoop: 4 x 1/4 Mile laps of running or walking on a track. At the beginning of each lap the participant must fully eat (and swallow) 6 Marshmallows. If participant tosses his/her respective cookies, they must complete 1 penalty lap (no marshmallows required to complete that lap). 

    The fastest man & woman will each receive a gift basket filled with Marshmallow goodies as well as a World Record certificate for world's fastest Marshmallow Mile. 

    In order to prevent too many participants in this race, there are 3 different waves we will be doing for this event. Wave 1 starts at 6:30pm. Wave 2 starts at 6:50pm. Wave 3 at 7:10 pm. We have a 50 participant limit in waves 1 and 2, while wave 3 doesn't have a participant limit. There is a 20 minute cut-off time to complete your run/walk. If you don't finish before the 20 minutes is up, you have to leave the track so the next wave can start. 

    There will be a clock at the start/finish area and you'll be relying on your own watch or timing device for results. This is not a professionally-timed event: our focus here is 100% fun.  

    As a super-cool bonus: Olympic medalist Jenny Simpson will be cheering you on as you attempt to set a World Record (or just humbly eat 24 marshmallows and try not to barf) in this unique event. Afterwards, stay for a fun meet & greet with Jenny filled with photo ops, autographs and a question/answer session. Each participant will receive an exclusive Marshmallow Mile decal. 

    Cost: $5 (plus runsignup registration fee)

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.
