Sir Walter Running – 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 2 Mile races. They’ll start at 7pm. The first will be for those predicting to run 5:30 and up, the second will be under 5:29. 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 / Sir Walter Qualifier will feature the Top 10 Men, the Top 10 Women, and an Open Mile. 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 5, 2022. Automatic Qualification for the Championship Miles will be allow for Males that have run 4:10.00 in the Mile (3:51.50 for 1500m), and Females that have run 4:45.00 (4:23.90 in the 1500m). Time must have been run on 1/1/2022 or later, and the winner of the Sir Walter Qualifier must have run these marks to gain entry into the 2022 Sir Walter Miler Elite Field.
