What is it?

It’s the only race in the country solely dedicated to children aged 16 and under in a safe, off-road environment run in age groups. There is no adult race in, on or around the May Mile!

Without the May Mile™, a lot of children would not necessarily be exposed to competitive running and could miss out on an athletic future.
