Join us Sir Walter Running and Raleigh Denim Workshop on Tuesday, June 19th at the Wake County Speedway for our version of the Ultimate Runner. Part of the Pop Up Miles series. Run on "America's Favorite Bullring," a quarter mile asphalt race track, right here in Raleigh! This event will double as Week #3 of the Pop Up Miles Championship qualifying, so there will be a Mile-only option for those that don't want to "go the distance."
More information is available at http://SpeedwaySession.com
But what is it?
At the "Session at the Speedway," competitors will compete in 4 events (Mile, 440 yards, 880 yards, 2 Mile). Scoring is based on overall place in each event. Like Golf, lowest score wins. There will be special awards for Top 10 Male and Female, plus Age Group Winners. Also like golf, there will be a lowest overall foursome Team Award (coed). Tea.ms can have more than 4, but Top 4 will score (and get award).
You will be grouped into heats based on your "predicted" (or actual) mile time, so be honest when you enter!
Don't want to run, but want to come hang out? The Session at the Speedway is fan friendly! You may bring a cooler (no larger than 14″), but NO GLASS ALLOWED! Support your local breweries, especially those that support us! Plan on having a drink or two? Please Uber, get a Taxi, or get a designated driver. Be Safe!
