Miles For Manufacturing 5K

Miles for Manufacturing 5K Supports Education

It’s time to walk, run, hike or bike to support schools and programs that prepare students for careers in manufacturing!

This is the week of Miles for Manufacturing 5k Run/Walk (M4M) and we want you to get out on the road, trail, or treadmill, if the weather is unpleasant. Whatever you’re doing to get the 3.1 miles (or maybe more), now is the time to do it. And bring family, friends, and a neighbor or two with you – after all this is all happening in your neighborhood.

Share photos, videos, mapped routes so we can see how you are doing your M4M 5k. Find us on social media:

We can’t wait to see how you’ll bring the M4M to life In Your community!


How’d M4M Start?

The Miles for Manufacturing 5k Run/Walk (M4M) was first run during IMTS 2014. Since that time, the M4M has been held 10 times around the country and has raised more than $95,000! And, since the IMTS tradeshow pays all of the hard costs of producing the M4M, every single dollar of that money has been awarded to schools and programs that prepare students for careers in manufacturing technology.

The 2020 M4M is the first that takes place in your own neighborhood and over course of a week, October 12 – 16, 2020. We thank all of the generous sponsors and those of you who registered, continuing support and growth of manufacturing technology education and opportunity.
