The event that was founded in 2013 with the aim of improving British racing standards and has grown into a fully-fledged international tournament in the short time since. With 29 participating countries, the racing atmosphere is crucial to supporting and improving performance.
For the first time, the event made use of electronic pace making technology. This saw “WaveLight” guide athletes and spectators along the runway of Parliament Hill during the race. “I am thrilled to see the #WAVELIGHT in this edition,” said event director Ben Pochee. “It continues the tradition that we have established on the night of 10,000 meters of PBs as an innovative running distance. With the #WAVELIGHT we bring the audience engagement to a higher level, bringing the full story and excitement of every race to life.”
