Family Mile 2021 (26th Sept)




We got the lines finished on our new track just in time for the Family Mile on Sunday morning 26th September, which was organised as part of the European Week of Sport, and supported by Sport Ireland and Athletics Ireland. This was the first time for many of our members and their families to run on the new track and to see it up close and about 200 took up the opportunity. There was a series of six one mile races, starting with the younger children and their families and moving on to races for boys and girls and for adults too, which were well supported and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Feedback on the new track was very positive and everyone agreed that it is a major boost for the Club and one we’ll enjoy for years ahead. Participants received a medal at the end of their run but if anyone missed out, please enquire at any training session.

Every Club that hosted a family mile has a chance to win up to €500 in vouchers of sports equipment for their Club. To be in with a chance to win for Mullingar Harriers, we’re asking everyone that took photographs on the day to please post them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, tagging @sportireland and @irishathletics and @athleticsireland while using the hashtag #BeActive.
