On Friday, August 24, 2012, the Auburn YMCA held its annual Downtown Mile, which is mapped through the historical streets of downtown Auburn. Each year the race starts at a new location with this years race starting in front of The Citizen, on Dill street.
The race is a family run for people of all ages and all levels of ability. In fact, participants from ages 2-75 were amongst the 400 who registered for the race this year. Like many other participants, Dale, Elaine, and Zachery Buchberger make the Auburn Downtown Mile an annual family tradition.
This years winner of the Auburn Downtown mile and good friend of the APTS crew, Chip O’hara finished the race in 4 min and 34 sec. The Buchberger father/son duo finished with comparable times. Zach finished the race 28th with a 6:01 min mile with Dale not far behind in 34th at 6:10.
The APTS team would like to congratulate all who participated in this years race!
