1 Mile Race ( from Andre Brodkorb )
Roger Bannister and the 60th anniversary of his first sub-four-minute mile were widely covered in the media a few weeks ago. Did you ever wonder how fast you could cover one mile? Well, I am keen to know! Therefore, I intend to organise an informal 1 mile road race in Midleton.
Date: Thursday 5th June
Course: Start at the 2 mile mark, finish at the 1 mile mark of the Midleton 5 mile course
Time: 8pm, traffic should be calmer around that time
We can meet at 7.30pm at the 1 mile mark, plenty of space to leave your car, bike, water bottles etc. do a good warm-up run to the 2 mile mark and some stretching. We will need two cars (or bikes), one in front and one at the back – volunteers needed! I created a doodle counter to get an indication of how many will turn up on the night, just follow the instructions here http://doodle.com/n5aq94y5yufabbt5
This will be an unofficial race, we can call it a training event for Midleton AC members to keep numbers under control.
Informal, self-timing, no bells and whistles – just running.
See you then
