GAA Miler Meet - Night of 10k’s
Incorporating the scottishathletics Senior 10,000m Championships
Friday 19 April; Crownpoint Stadium, Glasgow
 

10,000m running on the track is something that the Glasgow Athletics Association and scottishathletics are keen to develop with the aim being to improve quality and depth in the Scottish rankings.
 
So the GAA Miler Meet Night of 10k’s will be the Scottish Championship event for the 2019 track season and will provide paced 10,000m races for Scotland’s top male and female endurance athletes (U20 and older).
 
With the focus of furthering endurance running in Scotland by increasing the number of runners in the male and female 10,000m track rankings – the GAA will provide as many heats as necessary to cater for the number and standard of runners who are up for the challenge and come to Glasgow to test themselves in the GAA Miler Meet experience.
 
This Night of 10k’s is essentially the only opportunity for endurance runners across Scotland to compete in a paced 10,000m race on the track at their own performance level in 2019 – so we hope that runners utilise this opportunity to chase a new PB - demonstrating the point that the track is the fastest surface on which to record a 10,000m time.
 
Entries will open here: http://www.britishmilersclub.com/enteronline/ on Monday the 11th of March at 12 noon and we look forward to the support and enthusiasm of the Scottish endurance community in continuing to re-establish and develop the depth of the event once again.

Power of 10 lists for track 10,000m in 2018 here (male) and here (female)
 
GAA Miler Meet Night of 10k’s 2018 Results here
 
For reference, the Scottish All Time Lists are here
 
The maximum number of entries will be 80-100 – however our primary target would be to exceed the previous entry record of 60.

According to Power of 10 data, last year in Scotland we had 52 male athletes sub 36:00 and 16 female athletes sub 43:00.

It would be great if the GAA Miler Meets could contribute to maintaining and (hopefully) improving these stats for the 2019 season.

As we are hoping to have a number of races, pacemakers are going to play an important role on the night – so if you are interested in helping athletes achieve a new Personal Best over 10,000m - then please get in touch at: mark.pollard@gmail.com

Entry standard: 43:00
 
Additionally, there will again be a £250 'prize pot' available to the overall fastest in each of the men's and women's events, IF they break the following target times:
 
10,000m Men: 30.30        Women: 35.30

If only one athlete achieves the time he or she will claim the total prize pot. If more than one winner achieves the times it will be split equally (i.e. if two winners break the times they will get £125 each).
 
If no one achieves the prize pot standards, then the money will roll over and be added to the pot for the next GAA Miler Meet.
 
Our aims for the meet are as follows:

Pre Entry Only – Ensures no time is wasted on the night of the meeting 
Accurate Timetable - All races at the meeting start as per timetable
Pacemaking - Every race at the meeting has a pacemaker who will run at the stated pace
Electronic Timing – Have photofinish in place and all results are posted online on the night of the meeting
Personal Bests – That the meeting produces a high percentage of personal bests

PLEASE NOTE THE MASTERS 10,000m CHAMPIONSHIPS IS NO LONGER AT THIS EVENT AND WILL TAKE PLACE HERE: http://events.scottishathletics.org.uk/events/21021-18138-scottishathletics-national-masters-10000m-championships
