four mile road run

20th annual


2020 Event Update:

(updated 10/18/20)

In light of the recent COVID-19 trends, we have decided to make our special run an entirely virtual event.  Unfortunately, no in-person events will be held this year, including our flagship race in Indiana.  


While we understand that this news is disappointing, we would still love your support through your registration and your participation in a virtual run.  All you have to do is register and we'll mail your packet to you.  On Thanksgiving morning, run your favorite four mile route instead of coming to the actual event like you have in the past.

*Register before November 10 to guarantee availability of your t-shirt size*

Packet pick up in Indiana will be on Wednesday from 6:30 till 8:00 and Thursday morning from 7:00 to 8:00. Both will be in the NorthWood High School parking lot.

Packet pick up in Colorado will truly be virtual and we will mail your packet to you.

Thank you for your continued support in memory of Kelsey!!

We're proud to say we've awarded

31 scholarships



I'm Thankful Four is a four mile road run that was started in 2004 as a tribute to Kelsey Mikel.  Since we lost Kelsey in a tragic car accident, we have continued to gather and run in her memory on Thanksgiving morning.


All of the proceeds from the events go to the Kelsey Mikel Memorial Foundation, which provides scholarships to high school students.
