2023 marks the 19th Annual Potomac Street Mile, now held in celebration of former Brunswick Chief of Police Milton Frech Jr.*
The Potomac Street Mile is a level, out-and-back mile course run on East Potomac Street between Square Corner Park and the City Park Building. There are four age categories: Elementary School (first grade and above), Middle School, High School & Adult (19+). Awards are given for both male and female first and second place finishers. After-race snacks are provided.
Registration in advance online: https://runsignup.com/Race/MD/Brunswick/18thAnnualPotomacStreetMileMiltonFrechJrMemorialRun.
Day-of registrations will also be taken in Square Corner Park beginning at 8am.
*Chief Frech passed away on March 30, 2021. He was the embodiment of community policing, always present at community events keeping an eye on things, chatting away, and getting to know everyone in his town.
The Potomac Street Mile is very much in the spirit of Chief Frech: easygoing, welcoming, and right in the heart of downtown. If you believe, like Chief Frech did, that events like this are what get people invested in caring about where they live and building strong communities, join us.
Once again the City of Brunswick has granted ARPA funds to Brunswick Main Street to use towards improving the health, welfare, and safety of downtown buildings. This year Brunswick Main Street is expanding the program to include all city businesses inside city limits with less than 15 employees and only one location. Selected applicants will receive a one-time, reimbursable award of a minimum of $50,000 to improve eligible commercial properties. Ideal projects will strengthen the property’s infrastructure, and therefore, have a major impact on the building’s overall usability and marketability.
