A strong field line up Sunday to conquer the City Streets
Twenty-year-old Luke Mathews of Australia will start as overwhelming favourite to win the men’s elite race when the third edition of the Amba Hotels City of London Mile takes place in London this Sunday.
The ten o’clock chimes of St. Paul’s Cathedral heralded the start of the 2015 Amba Hotels City of London Mile. Over the course of the day thousands of feet pounded the city streets in sixteen different races. Runners of all ages and from all walks of life braved tube disruptions and less than favourable weather to challenge themselves over athletics’ classic distance.
