The Aberdeen Union Street Mile is back once more as a forerunner to the Celebrate Aberdeen Weekend on Saturday, August 24th , with race organisers anticipating another successful event. The marvellous spectacle sets the stage for the fantastic Celebrate Aberdeen Parade which brings the strong sense of community and all that’s good about Aberdeen to the fore. All of this is made possible with the help of local companies.
The Race entries are open to Primary 6 and 7 pupils, Secondary 1 - 4 pupils, Seniors and Veteran Runners which includes secondary 5 and upwards. Over 1000 speedy contestants have darted through Aberdeen’s most famous street since the race started. This may be one of the Granite City’s shortest road races, but completing the one mile dash is no mean feat.
Seniors and Veteran Men must be able to complete the mile in 10 Minutes, Females should be able to complete in 11 Minutes.
