About this event
As part of Open Newbury Street on September 9th, the Trackhouse Mile (hosted by Tracksmith) will kick off the day’s festivities with the first-ever all-comers mile race on Newbury Street. There will be two heats - an open and a seeded heat - as well as a club competition within the seeded heat.
The one mile race will begin outside the Trackhouse at 285 Newbury, run east down to Dartmouth Street, turn around west to Mass Ave and finish back at 285 Newbury Street.
Prizes for the Top 3 Men and Women and the Top 3 Teams (team of 2 men and 2 women).
King and Queen of the Kick
The mile requires a knack for racing tactics. And often that means a perfectly timed kick. The Trackhouse Mile will reward the male and female runners who lay down the fastest last quarter with the title King and Queen of the Kick. So race accordingly.
Largest Team Competition
The team with the most runners win a roof deck party on an evening of their choice. Please specify which team you are on in the questions.
Numbers will be available for pickup during store hours on Friday, September 7th and Saturday, September 8th. Limited number pick-up will be available on race-day from 8am-9am.
Join us in a post-race celebration in the Eliot Lounge from 11-2pm.
