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.
there are special commemorative medals for everyone who races in the British mile relays.
In addition in each age group there are prizes for the fastest teams:
First team: £200 (£50 per runner) in sports vouchers
Second team: £100 (£25 per runner) in sports vouchers
Third team: £60 (£15 per runner) in sports vouchers
If any team sets a new English record (currently held by Wirral AC at 19:47) they will receive unique boxed medals and the Leo Carroll Trophy
the key point is that 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.
