Zurich 2mile track race on Wednesday evening 27 August 2008 @ 7:30pm

The Zurich 2 mile track race will be held on Wednesday 27th August 2008 in Irishtown Stadium, Ringsend.  Registration commences from 5.30pm to 7.15pm only and race fee is €5 for current BHAA members and €10 for non-members.  The first race is at 7.30pm sharp and all races are 2 miles on the track – 8 laps plus about 18 metres.  As usual, there will be refreshments and prizes afterwards.

The format will go as follows:

There will be 5 races as shown when you click on "read more" below although this may change on the night depending on numbers as races may have to be split or combined . The race in which you should run will be based on your current BHAA standard, which all members have. A handicap system similar to that used in the recent Irish Life & Permanent Races will apply to Races 1, 2, 3 & 4 with prizes for first past the post and for 1st, 2nd and 3rd after handicap adjustment (although slightly longer than the 3,000 metre races, the handicap adjustment will remain at 4 seconds x 3 Kilometres per unit of BHAA Standard). For example if your standard is 13 (4 x 3 x 13 = 156 Seconds) and you run the 2 miles in 11.50 your handicap adjusted time will be 9.14, 11.50 less 156 seconds.  Click on "read more"…
