Join sporting heroes to run a mile!
Run the Bupa Westminster Mile this summer!
Backed by Paralympic super-star David Weir and British 400m record-holder Iwan Thomas, the Bupa Westminster Mile is a series of mile-long races for all ages and abilities, taking place on Sunday 26 May 2013, in the heart of London.
Westminster City Council is working jointly with London Marathon Limited and Bupa to deliver the event which forms a key part of the council’s long-term Olympic and Paralympic legacy.
Returning to The Mall where he won his fourth gold medal during last summer’s Paralympics, David Weir said: “To deliver a real legacy, Paralympic sport needs high-profile inclusive events like this which can inspire more people to get involved in sport.
“The beauty of the Bupa Westminster Mile is it’s a one-mile road race, making it accessible to everyone of all ages and abilities.”
Across more than twenty different categories, the event is aimed at competitors of all ages and abilities across the country. This will include races for junior and senior wheelchair users as well as visually impaired athletes in the T11-13 categories.
The route will take entrants along the historic Mall, site of the start and finish line of the London 2012 Olympic marathon, before heading around the edge of St James’s Park in heart of Central London.
Entry for the event is now open and people can register online by visiting www.bupawestminstermile.co.uk
