TheMile at Melrose Arch

Thursday 26th September

 

The allure of the Mile is undeniable. It is an exciting challenge for competitive runners, novices and running enthusiasts alike. The Melrose Mile is a road race where runners battle it out to see who is quickest over a one-mile distance (1.6km). The course takes participants through the Melrose precinct and is fast, exhilarating and fun! Personal bests will fall and teams will conquer, but it is also an opportunity for beginners and social runners to enjoy this unique run through Melrose Arch.

 

DATE

Thursday 26th September at 18H00

Yes! It’s a night race. But don't worry, headlights are not required.

VENUE

Melrose Arch Piazza, Melrose Arch, Melrose

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The Mile is a mat-to-mat, all or nothing, winner takes all, full throttle, high-stakes adrenaline race.

But in a thrilling, heart-pounding way. And we can’t wait to see who is quickest!

If this isn't for you, don't close the screen, we do have a 'non-competitive' option.

Choose your batch and get ready to hit the street running!
