Inc the Essex AA 1 Mile Championships
Saturday 24th June, Melbourne Stadium
UKA Licence No OUT23/137
Chelmsford AC's Miles of Miles is back this year with a bang and this will be our biggest and best Miles of Miles event yet.
Since its inception our aim has always been to encourage athletes of all abilities to come along and "have a go"... it doesn't matter if you've never set foot on a track before or if you aren't a member of an athletics/running club. This could be the start of your athletics journey or the rekindling of a past passion.
We have the pleasure this year of incorporating the first Essex AA's 1 Mile Championships in well over a half a century, so just think, you could be the first Essex 1 Mile Champion in your age group that wasn't in black & white.
Thanks to local firm Comms Express for their kind sponsorship this year we're able to offer cash prizes for each age groups fastest M & F and medals for the 1st, 2nd & 3rd place finisher in each race.
The cash prizes don't stop there, we are offering up a hefty £500 to the fastest Sub 4 minute mile plus the same amount for the fastest female to run Sub 4.37. A Sub 4 has never been run on our track at Melbourne Stadium and to our knowledge an Essex athlete has never run a Sub 4 on Essex soil, so there's history to be made.
The event is open to everyone of all abilities with no club affiliation required.
Age categories are as follows... U11*, U13, U15, U17, U20, Senior, V40+, V50+, V60+ in both male and female. Your age category for this event will be whatever category you would be in for the 2023 track season.
Please Note: Athletes need to be 9 years of age or above on the 24th June 2023 in order to compete.
*U11's are not eligible to compete for the Essex Championships
