The Run Club Races are back for the 2018 Sir Walter Miler. This year we will have 2 different events for the run clubs to compete in. Not 1, but 2 Trophies will be awarded and bragging rights will last all year long (or at least until Pop Up Cross Country).
The 4×400 Relay is back, and will likely be 2 heats. The Mile is new this yearand will feature a head start for the female entry of 45 seconds, and the first team to have both their Male and Female athlete finish will be Champion. Deadline to sign up is July 20, 2018.
Team Rules (must fill both races – and wear similar uniforms/shirts)
- The Run Club Mile, which will require 1 Male and 1 Female Member (Milers can double back and run the 4×400 as well)
- The Run Club 4×400 Relay, which will require 2 Male and 2 Female Team Members
*If your club is predominantly male or female, email us, as we can make exceptions.
New for 2018 – We’ll be raising money for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund and are requesting a $50 donation per team to race. While this is not required, we do hope you will help us support this great cause!
