Why run the Mile?
This is your chance to run on Darwin’s iconic Mitchell Street!
The Mitchell Street Mile aims to attract running enthusiasts, locals and visitors to a unique new sporting event. Runners will enjoy the thrill of having spectators cheer them on as they sprint up and down Mitchell Street in a bid for the title of the fastest Mitchell Miler – all in the heart of Darwin’s bustling CBD.
