Wellington Scottish Athletics Club

Running and Walking in Wellington, New Zealand

Lifestyle Sports Night of Miles

19 December 2020, Newtown Park, 3pm

Background information

The Lifestyle Sports Scottish Night of Miles is a unique event full of Christmas fun and features races over the rarely run distance of one mile.

Each year we collect donations ($5 suggested) from athletes and spectators then hand them on to a local Wellington charity. 2020’s charity is the Wellington Free Ambulance.

We are also grateful to our event sponsor, Lifestyle Sports, who are a long-standing supporter of Scottish Athletics and one of the premier retailers of running kit within the region.

The programme consists of a mix of children’s, senior elite and fun social events. There are several different mile races including elite men’s and women’s races and an all-comers mile that anyone can participate in (including Father Christmas).

The provisional programme is outlined below. Please enter in advance to take part in one of the seeded races:

  • Open Walkers
  • Masters Men
  • Open Men and Women

Anyone wanting to compete in the Kids Chocolate Fish Dash, the All-Comers Social Mile (against Father Christmas), Mile Relay or any of the sprints can enter on the day.
