The Draper Mile is a one-mile downhill race held in conjunction with the Steppin' Out Festival and part of the 2018 RunAbout Race Series. The course is mostly downhill, starting and ending on Draper Road in Blacksburg, with the finish in the middle of the street festival. Times are about 10–12 seconds faster than for a track mile.

Register at RunAbout Sports prior to race day or behind Mish Mish on Jackson Street in downtown Blacksburg on the day of the race. Race day packet pickup will be at the same location from 10:00 am until 5:30 pm.

The Kid's Fun Run requires no registration, just meet at the corner of the Kent Street Parking garage at 6:10 pm.
