(Due to a longer than expected delay in the repair of the Plumb Hill Track, Litchfield Park and Rec's first "Night of Miles is cancelled.

The event was to have been held at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 23, 2019.

Hopefullly the repairs will be completed by our next "Night of Miles" on August 13th.)

All ages are invited to run a mile on the track, which is a Mondo surface. The Plumb Hill track is made of the same stuff on which the Olympics track events were run at the Beijing Olympics.

It is a very fast track and is only one of three tracks of its kind in all of New England. This is a great opportunity to see just how fast you are over the mile distance. Timing of the event will be handled by Sunstroke Timing. Dave Driscoll, Litchfield Track Club Head Coach, is compiling a list of the fastest times run at the previous nights of miles. Come and run and then see where you rate against the others who have run the “Night of Miles!”

Registration begins at 5:45 p.m. Entry fees are $2.00 per runner. Runners will compete with others in their age groups with the youngest age group running first and the oldest age group running last. Some age groups with very competitive runners can be combined.

Awards will be given for the first 3 in each age group: 9 and under; 10-12; 13-15, 16-18; 19-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60 & over in both male and female categories.
