50 Free Entries to 1,500m Night!

Nationally known as the deepest middle distance meet in Canada, 1,500m Night is hosted annually on the first available weekend after the OFSAA high school championships - perfect timing for young athletes who are new to the sport to experience the incredible atmosphere that has been developed over the past decade plus of London Distance Series races. The huge fields provide exceptional racing opportunities for all levels of runners from local youngsters and masters all the way to top national level athletes.

To encourage new participation and facilitate access to all London area runners, the host club (London Runner) has offered an unprecedented 50 free entries to local runners. The goal is to provide a racing opportunity to runners who have not yet experienced such an event and ensure that the cost of entry is not prohibitive by removing both the entry fee and covering the one day Athletics Ontario insurance fee for each of these participants. There is no age or ability restriction on this offer.
