About the Mile

  • Mile events taking place on Sunday 23rd March.
  • Hundreds of Miles, up and down the country.
  • Flagship Mile at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London.
  • Choice of distances to suit all abilities: 1, 3 or 6 miles.

  • It’s a great, fun, family day out.
  • It’s suitable for all ages and you can enter friends and family.

If you can’t make one of our Mile events, why not get sponsored to do a run of your own? For all the tips and tools to help you, download a Fundraising Kit now.
