(1,500M & 5,000M)
Friday 28th July
1500m - open to athletes in the U15 age group and older
5,000m - open to athletes in the U20* age group and older
*Over 5000m, U17s at this meeting are required to run in a separate heat. As such, we will only be able to provide an U17 5,000m heat if we have enough athletes to make this viable in the timetable. U17s interested in competing over 5,000m at the July GAA Miler Meet should email: email@example.com to indicate their interest, should this be possible.
As always, this job is crucial to the success of the meet and we are keen to add to our pacemaking stable. So, if you feel you would like to help athletes achieve a new PB, then please
get in touch – whether for this event or in the future.
We expect you to declare at least one hour before your event and final declarations will be at 2000.
Assembly will be at race start 10 minutes before your race is due to start. The races will start on time – we will not wait for you or come and look for you – it is your responsibility to be there at
the right time, ready to race.
Could all spectators, coaches and athletes be very aware that for the electronic timing to function we have photo finish in operation at the finishing line. While we are keen that athletes get the opportunity to warm up as easily as possible on the track, it is crucial that athletes do not run through the line while a race is in process as this can disrupt the photo finish system and cause
problems with the results.
Additionally, there will be a 'prize pot' of £400 available to the overall fastest in each of the men's and women's events IF they break the following target times:
1500m Men: 3.45.00 Women: 4.15.00
5000m Men: 14.15.00 Women: 16.15.00
If only one athlete achieves the time he or she will claim the prize pot. If more than one winner achieves the times it will be split equally (i.e. if two winners break the times they will get half the pot, etc - to a maximum of four winning athletes sharing the pot).
Withdrawals / Reserve List
Any athlete who is no longer able to compete must let us know as soon as possible – we are currently employing a reserve list and athletes on there are keen to get a run if possible.
