2018 Lifestyle Sports Scottish Night of Miles
This Event Is Now Closed.

The LIFESTYLE SPORTS Scottish Night of Miles is an annual event organised by Wellington Scottish Running Club. It 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. This year's charity is Bellyful NZ. Bellyful provides meals for families with newborn babies and families with young children who are struggling with illness.

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 - by end of day 5 December - 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 or the All-Comers Social Mile (against Father Christmas) can enter on the day.
