The Mitchell Street Mile aims to attract running enthusiasts, locals and visitors to a unique new sporting event. Runners will enjoy the thrill of having spectators cheer them on as they sprint up and down Mitchell Street in a bid for the title of the fastest Mitchell Miler – all in the heart of Darwin’s bustling CBD.
Online gaming company Lottoland is offering $1 million for any athlete who can break the male or female track mile world records during the now renamed Lottoland Mitchell Street Million Dollar Mile.
The course is a certified 1 mile (1.6km) event by Athletics Northern Territory.
In 2017 the runs will again be preceded by a Cycling Criterium using the same course. It’s a great opportunity to see riders tackle the course from 1.30pm.
Mitchell Street, Darwin, Northern Territory, 0800, Australia
