On Thursday, the club marks the 62nd anniversary of Herb Elliott’s World Mile Record set in Santry in that original Dream Mile, where for the first time in history 5 athletes ran sub 4 in the same race. While records may not be on the cards tomorrow a night of competitive close racing is very much so. Once again a great response from the club’s athletes to these events sees several races required tomorrow. The men’s mile is generously sponsored by Joe Cooper, and the women’s mile not so generously by Noel Guiden.

8.08 U/15 Boys Mile
8.16 Women’s B Mile
8.22 Men’s D Mile
8.30 Men’s C Mile
8.38 Men’s B Mile
8.46 Women’s A Mile
