We are pleased to announce that we have teamed up with Athletics Weekly to offer their readers the chance to run in their very own AW wave at the inaugural Amba Hotels City of London Mile in June. Joining the Athletics Weekly wave means that runners will not only find out how fast they can run the iconic mile distance in the 60th anniversary year of Sir Roger Bannister’s first sub-four-minute mile, they will also support the Ron Pickering Memorial Fund.
For every runner signed up to the AW wave, £2.50 of the £15 entry fee will be donated to the Ron Pickering Memorial Fund.
Anyone wishing to take part and celebrate the mile with the team from Athletics Weekly should go to cityoflondonmile.co.uk and enter now using the code AWMILE to guarantee a place in the AW wave. Places are limited.
All race finishers will receive a commemorative medal and goody bag. The event will also London’s first annual International Mile Race.
