The Naked Mile

Ninesprings Country Park, Yeovil, Somerset


In 2017 we will be running The Naked Mile on 2 dates:

  • Friday 5th May 2017
  • Friday 15th September 2017

The certified 1 mile route (Course Measurement Certificate) is an out and back ‘P’ shaped course on a flat tarmac surface, allowing for fast times. Runners will be set off in groups of approximately 10.

This event is designed to give all runners a chance to win. Before you start you must provide a predicted finishing time. There will be a prize for the male and female that fi nishes closest to their predicted finishing time. This encourages you to set a challenging yet personally obtainable target.

However, this is a watch and phone free event. This is the ‘naked’ in ‘Naked Mile’!

Alternatively there are also prizes for the outright fastest times for a male and female.

Come along and have blast round at a PB friendly 1 mile time trial on a UKA licensed event (Event Certificate).

With the first wave of runners going off at 6.30pm the race limit will be 50 runners. With runners going off in mixed waves of 10 maximum at start times around 6.30pm, 6.40pm, 6.50pm, 7pm, 7.10pm

** New for 2017 ** As well as the classic “Time Trial” we will also be offering 3 “Race” waves for those super speedsters looking for a competitive burnout. If you want to take part in one of these races rather than the time trial, simply choose the right option on the entry form. We have U16, Women’s and Mens races.

Race entry is £3 for affiliated runners and £5 for unaffiliated runners. All profits collected from this event will be donated to the charity “Friends of Yeovil Country Park”.
