Our Vision

We want to help raise athletic standards in 5,000m track running across the UK and Ireland.

We hope our event provides a stepping stone to greater things, be that a qualifying time to compete in subsequent IMC or BMC meets or the qualifying time to compete in European and/or Commonwealth championships.

For others we want to provide a meet that will allow them to get best out of themselves combined with an event that their family, friends and loved ones will enjoy attending in person or watching live on our interactive and entertaining Livestream.

Ultimately we would like to emulate those glory days of the 80s and 90s at Mary Peters when thousands of spectators lined the banks of the natural amphitheatre and witnessed some of the best athletes in the world compete head to head.
