The Prairie Inn Harriers and 2:18 Run proudly present the fourth edition of the Harriers Bob Reid Magical Mile. The "Old School" race takes place on the E&N paved Rail Trail meeting at View Royal Elementary School on Helmcken Road.
NEW 2021 RACE COURSE
The course starts at the Helmcken Rail Bridge and runs west for half a mile to Kislingbury Lane then turns back to the Start/Finish Line at the Helmcken Rail Bridge
ACCESS TO RACE START/FINISH
After parking at View Royal Elementary School, walk up the paved ramp or stairs to the E&N Rail Trail.
ESTIMATED FINISH TIMES
It is mandatory that every runner completes a maximum effort "test mile" as a training run to determine a good indication of their estimated time. Use a local track, or measure 1.6 kilometres with a car or bicycle on a flat road course for the test run. This time will determine rankings, starting positions and bib number assignments.
SANDBAGGERS AND DREAMERS
Runners that are sandbagging by racing at least one minute faster than their estimated time and runners that are dreaming by running at least one minute slower than their estimated time are subject to disqualification. No junk excuses will be accepted for stretching the truth!
RACE FORMAT - STAGGERED STARTS
Every runner will start at 10 second intervals with the fastest estimated time runner going first and the slowest estimated time runner going last. This format offers very little or no passing so that each runner is racing alone against the clock.
Early - $25.00 from July 1 to August 31, 2021. Late - $30.00 from September 1 to September 5, 2021. Day-of-Race $40.00 at Start Line if the entry limit of 100 has not been reached.
Age category awards will be presented at 1:30 pm or as soon as the final runner finishes.
A maximum limit of 100 entries in 8 age categories will be accepted for this event.
