The Albie Thomas Mile returns to The Crest in 2016, with Jordan Gusman set to headline a cracking field set to go sub-4 for the second consecutive year. Gusman will defend his 2015 title on 10 December, chasing a total prize pool of over $3,500. The evening honors the memory of Albie Thomas, one of Australia's greatest-ever runners and the first Australian to break the 4-minute mile barrier.
As well as the men's Albie Thomas Mile and the headline women's 1,500m, the event will also feature a RunNSW Trackrun 3km event. Come along and try running on the track for the first time, before sticking around to watch some of the best athletes in Australia go head to head.
With bars, food and a Running Science pop-up store, the Albie Thomas Mile will be a festival of running for those in attendance and the official ANSW Live Stream will bring the meet to those unable to experience it live.
Funding is available for interstate athletes to travel to the meet to compete in the headline events. To discuss travel assistance, please contact Matthew Whitbread on 0410 588 321 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
