Sir Walter Running – Pop Up Miles

Pop Up Miles

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 3 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, and the last will be a different distance. If you choose, you’ll be able to submit your times for posting here, on the website. We’ll post each weeks results, as well as keep the Top 10 up to date. Top 10 qualify for the Championship Miles.

The Championship Week 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 5th.

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 2016 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!
