Want to run a fast mile? or just beat your elementary school time? Want to earn a spot in the Sir Walter Miler elite race? It’s all possible once again this June in Raleigh.
Here’s how it’s going down: Each week, we’ll have 2 mile races. They’ll start at 7pm. The first will be for those predicting to run 5:30 to 7:30, the second will be under 5:30. We’ll also have a bonus distance and a bonus relay each week, so grab your friend and get ready to run fast!
The Championship Miles Week on Tuesday, June 27 will will feature the Top 10 Men, the Top 10 Women, and an open race. The Winners of the Men’s Championship and Women’s Championship Race will earn the final spot in the Sir Walter Miler Elite Race on Friday, August 4th. The Top 10 times will be compiled through the first three weeks of the Pop Up Miles.
New for 2017: Men can automatically qualify for the 2017 Pop Up Miles Championship Miles with a Sub-3:50 1500 meters or Sub-4:10 track mile. Women can auto qualify with a sub 5:00 1500m or sub 5:20 mile. Marks must be from 1/1/2017 or after. Send proof of marks by June 20, 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org
Make sure you sign up on the email list to find out where the Pop Up Miles will be. We’ll bring a race clock and call splits. You do the rest. Show up, run fast, bring your own water, and clean up after yourself. We’ll even have pacers for certain times. Feel free to bring a dollar or two donation to help fund the 2017 Sir Walter Miler as well.
And finally… tell your friends, but please keep race venues off of social media. This is a true pop up. Email your friends, call them, text them, or fax them. Just don’t kill the party!
