2018 London Distance Series Dates

2018 marks the 14th 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.
