Prediction Mile 2016

Prediction Mile is fast approaching – January 30th! At the Sportplex Fieldhouse.

The Prediction Mile will run at 20:00 (8:00 PM).  Be there by 19:45 to make sure you are ready to go at 20:00.

What is a Prediction Mile? You just have to predict how long it will take you to run one mile on the track and whoever is closest to their prediction, wins! No timing devices allowed though!

Sounds easy, right? Well, in 3 of the last 5 years, the winners have been 1 second off prediction; tie in 2015 at 1 second, 10 seconds in 2014, tie in 2013 at 1 second, 1 second in 2012, tie in 2011 at 3 seconds. If you aren’t within 5 seconds of your prediction, get practicing! Of course, winning isn’t everything and just winging it works too!

Distance:          1 mile (1.6 km / 1760 yards / 5280 feet / etc.)
Start location:    Fieldhouse track, 1717 Elphinstone Street, Meet by the track.
Start time:         8:00 PM, Saturday January 30th.
Cost:                    Free for members. Guests of members are free, so sign up anyway.

RSVPs are encouraged so that we get enough post-race snacks. To RSVP, email the Events Coordinator by Friday January 29.

What do I need? Whatever you need to run or walk seven complete laps of the outside lane at the Fieldhouse, plus one timing device.

Why a timing device? Everyone will take a turn running and a turn timing someone else, so everyone can participate, walkers or runners.
