Ambleside Mile Giveaway

Have you ever run a mile? Yes, I mean, of course you’ve run a mile. Many miles, probably. On the road, on the track. A whole bunch back to back. But have you ever run a one-mile race? If not, here’s your chance – a GIVEAWAY!

The Ambleside Mile takes place in the West Vancouver neighbourhood of Ambleside, a charming community close to the ocean. The event is held on Saturday, June 6 in conjunction with West Vancouver Community Day. For more information on the race itself, visit the Ambleside Mile website.


What’s it like to run a mile? Read about the 2014 Ambleside Mile in my race report.

Here’s a video of the whole race! (I cross the line at 4:28 – which is NOT how fast I run a mile!)

The great thing about this race – you are finished in less than 10 minutes (maybe even less than 5 minutes!), and you get all the good stuff that comes with a major road race:

  • Race t-shirt
  • Finisher’s medal
  • Food & drink
  • Fun & frivolity

But why would I want to run just a mile?

It’s a great challenge! See how you stack up! Get in a little bit of speed training in preparation for your next race. And heck – you might get to run for free!


Enter for a chance to win an entry to the Ambleside Mile. Giveaway ends at midnight on May 12, 2015. Open to Canadian & US residents – as long as you’re able to get yourself to West Vancouver, BC for the race on June 6, 2015! A random winner will be chosen via Rafflecopter.

  1. Love that a 1 mile race can get you all of that swag! And crossing at 4:28! Holy cow!! I have done a 1 mile race a couple of times. There is an awesome racing company near me in New Hampshire that does a 1 mile race on New Years Day! It’s a great way to start any fitness goals someone might have to start off the year. Plus it’s completely downhill!

      It’s a great race for sure. Now please note – 4:28 was NOT my finishing time…it’s just the time on the video (because they didn’t film the gap when no one was there). My final race result was 6:46. My goal this year…to trim even just a few seconds off of that pace!

      A New Year’s one miler – sounds like a great idea!!

      Thanks for dropping by!
