Organiser's Description

Old Tram Mile: Solo Series for July 2020

TheRunBible (TRB) in association with RunPreston (Preston's only running specialist) are pleased to bring you the Old Tram Mile: Solo Series for July.

What is it?: After the successful OTM Solo Series in June (read the review here), we've decided to go again in July with a few tweaks! This is to try and align it to the actual event (which we hope will take place from August - watch this space...). Basically you can run the Uphill mile, Downhill mile or both - you choose (we dare you to do both...).

Where is it?:  Old Tram Road, Preston, PR1 9TY. See TRB Facebook event page here for pic's of start & finish. 

When is it?:  Complete your run/s anytime between Monday 13th and Sunday 26th July (8pm cut-off on 26th).

What time? Whenever (and however many times) you like between the above dates!

How much is it?: £2 for either mile or both miles. You have the option to purchase extra's - (a) An engraved finishers medal, (b) Race Series Technical T-Shirt and/or Hoody and (c) Make a donation to Derian House Children's Hospice (our selected charity for this event). See our TRB Facebook event page for pic's of the medal and T-Shirts/Hoodies (+ banter and updates etc.) - here
