The British Mile Relays is an innovative race series where women and men race on equal terms in teams of 4 (2 women and 2 men in each team). We believe that true equality in sport will be accelerated by competitive events where women and men compete for each other - and with each other - on equal terms for equal prizes, and that is why we are so pleased to support this event.

ANYONE CAN RACE, that is the most important thing. You don't need to be an olympian, a budding 4 minute specialist or even a member of a running club. What you need are 3 friends who would like a night of challenge and fun.

What are the British Mile Relays?

The British Mile Relays are a 4 x 1 mile race that involves teams made up of 2 women and 2 men. The British Mile Relays are open to runners of all abilities and are seperated into 4 categories - u17, u23, Seniors and Masters. You don't need to be an olympian, a budding 4 minute specialist or even a member of a running club. What you need are 3 friends who would like a night of challenge and fun.

The small print

You run for each other. Men and women run for each other. You can choose to run for a club, for your work, for a charity or anything else you choose, but you pick your own team. You can call your team anything you like (within reason!), but you cannot use the name of a running club unless you are all members of that club. In addition if one of your team is registered member of England Athletics, you will receive a £2 discount on your team entry.
