2023 LIFESTYLE SPORTS Night of Miles – Newtown Park
The LIFESTYLE SPORTS Scottish Night of Miles is an annual event organized
by Wellington Scottish Athletics Club
This is a unique event full of Christmas fun, and features races over the rarely run distance historic one mile. We acknowledge our event sponsor, Lifestyle Sports, who are a long-standing supporter of Scottish Athletics and one of the premier retailers of running kit within the region.
Each year we collect donations from athletes and spectators, then hand them on to a local Wellington charity. This year’s charity is the Trail blazers. For the competitive events in the programme where pre-entry is required, we have set a $10 entry fee that will be part of the donations to Trail blazers.
The programme outlined below consists of a mix of children’s, senior and fun social events. There are several different mile races including elite men’s and women’s races and an all-comers mile that anyone can participate in (including Father Christmas).
The programme includes fun events:
Open events and Mile races must pre enter using the provided entry link 6.00pm Friday 15 December.
Anyone wanting to compete in the Kids Chocolate Fish Dash, the All-Comers Social Mile (against Father Christmas), Mile relay can enter on the day. For 1 Mile run events require a Seed time. Please enter a realistic estimate of your time to run 1609m (note this is 7% longer distance than a 1500m – so as an example a person who can run 1500m in 5:30, a seed time for the Mile could be 5:53). When entering your seed time, please follow this format exactly: MM:SS.00.
