Annadale Striders’ Day of 3000m Races

Saturday 6th July, 2024

Mary Peters Track, Belfast


Now in its fifth year, Annadale Striders’ Day of 3000m Races is fast becoming a staple in the Northern Ireland track season. With graded races to suit all competitive runners, this meeting is perfect for athletes targeting a fast race against runners matched to their ability.


Along with prize money for both the men’s and women’s ‘A’ races, we are offering a cash bonus for anyone who can break our Meeting Records (Male: 8:18.03 / Female: 9:27.97).


All races will be paced to at least 1000m to help achieve fast times.


We are also introducing a novice race in 2024 for those who would like to gain some experience on the track. For this friendly opening race, you would not be required to wear spikes, and we can offer guidance on what to expect. This is perfectly suited to runners who have some experience in road races and are capable of running anything over 20 minutes for the 5K, but have little to no track racing experience. Anyone capable of a sub-20 minute 5K will still be welcome to race but will be allocated to a seeded race based on their ability and spikes will be needed.


Please email for more information about this opportunity.


We also plan to run two male and two female 200m races.


Entry: £12 for 3000m, £10 for 200m

Deadline for entry: 2/7/2024
