NiRunning Mile 2017
NiRunning announce details of NiRunning/BMC Mile 2017:
Since the NiRunning (Northern Ireland) website was set up in August 2012, our NiRunning Mile has been a prominent event in our annual schedule, it is something that we are extremely proud of.
The reputation of the Mile continues to grow and it is therefore with great pleasure that we announce that this years ‘NiRunning Mile’ will take place on Friday 5th May 2017.
Like previous years, the ‘Mile’ will be run in conjunction with the world renowned British Milers Club (BMC) and will take place at the home of athletics in Northern Ireland, the Mary Peters Track in Belfast. The exciting race programme will be enhanced by two FREE kids ‘Fun Mile’ events (which will be coordinated by ALLSTARS SPORTS ACADEMY). These will kick off at 6.30pm… with the timed Miles starting at 7pm. As always, the timetable will include mile events for runners of all abilities, after all, EVERYONE needs a mile time!
BMC’s Northern Ireland Secretary, John Glover commented “The British Milers Club is delighted once again to be associated with NiRunning in promoting a series of mile races at the Mary Peters Track. Last years event was a huge success and given the revitalised interest in the 1 mile distance across the UK I envisage that this year will see an even stronger event.”
NiRunning’s Ryan Maxwell added, “for us (NiRunning), the NiRunning Mile is something that we have grown from the website’s first days. To watch it increase in popularity and prestige, whilst attracting the continued support of the BMC makes me extremely proud.”
