DOE Mile 2022!

It’s time for the DOE Mile again!   This year’s event will allow for both virtual and onsite competition.  Cross country scoring will be used for the team scoring.

The onsite event will be on Thursday, October 13th at noon.  The location is still being determined, the site will be updated soon.  Onsite participants do not need to pre-register.

If you’re in the Virgin Pulse program, individual participants will receive 100 points, runners with the best ANL time in their category will receive 500 points, and when you submit the online race form, you will automatically be entered in a raffle to win 5,000 points.  Sorry, points are available to employees only, no points are earned for participation by family members.  Points are earned for FY23 VP accruals.
