The NiRunning Mile, in association with the British Milers Club (BMC), will take place on Friday 5th May 2017.
This year, the event has attracted a record number of nearly 300 entries. There will be NO on the night entries available.
Start Lists and a Timetable are now AVAILABLE here: NiRunning Mile 2017 Start Lists & Timetable
Programme of Event and Important Information – Please Read:
The evening will kick off with two Kids Fun Mile races (un-timed), which will be hosted by our friends from Allstars Sports Academy. These races will provide young children with the opportunity to experience the track and the atmosphere of a big stadium – then, hopefully they will return to MPT and compete in the future.
At 7pm, we will start the official one mile timed races. You have been allocated the race of your choice, however, with so many entries, there may be several ‘heats’ for your chosen race – so please take some time to look at the attached start lists and check what heat/race you are in and what time it starts at. You MUST run in your allocated race, we cannot emphasis this enough.
To allow the programme to run on time, each race will start promptly at the specified time (this is listed on the start lists) – unfortunately, if you miss your race, it is very unlikely that we will be able to slot you into a different race given the large numbers. So, on that basis, please arrive early and leave plenty of time to pick up your race number from the registration area (this will be well sign-posted) – it will speed things up greatly if you know your Bib Number and which Race (eg Race 5) you are in – this information is on the attached document. Please also be ready to come onto the track five minutes before your race start time. Despite our pre-planned volunteer staffing levels, we expect that there will be queues at registration.
There will be a mobile coffee shop on-site and tea/coffee and snacks can be purchased for the duration of the event.
The prize-giving will take place approximately 10 minutes after the final race – there will be prizes for the top three fastest athletes of the night.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to change races at this stage.
