Meet #4: Forest City 5,000m

Series Information

2017 marks the 13th year of the Runners' Choice London Distance Series. All meets are sanctioned by Athletics Ontario and hosted by the London Runner Distance Club, with the help of local officials and volunteers. Our goal is to provide well-organized, late evening racing opportunities for distance runners of all abilities: from local competitors to international level qualifiers. Heats will run Slow to Fast, with High Performance sections towards the end of each meet. Organizers will post Performance Lists and Final Schedules at least 24 hours in advance.

Please Note
*Following the 2016 IAAF rule change, 5,000m and 10,000m races will only be conducted as Mixed gender when there are insufficient entries to host separately.
*We strongly encourage athletes and coaches to use recent performances, or reasonable estimates, when submitting seed times.
*Entries will be done online using TrackieReg
