Free Entry for Local Kids to 1,500m Night

Over the past decade, 1,500m Night in London, Ontario has become a marquee track meet on the domestic racing scene. The event has grown to reguarly include over 300 participants, with High Performance competitors annually producing many of the fastest times run by Canadians on Canadian soil. The 2012 edition of 1,500m Night was featured in a documentary film by Michael del Monte. This event provides a unique racing opportunity that brings together runners of all ability levels, from kids just beginning to discover their love for running to National Team members that represent Canada in global championships.
