The Bendigo Bank Dragon Mile has played a significant part in the athletics history of Bendigo and plays a key part in the Easter Parade during this festive period, with this year's event on Sunday, 16 April 2017.
It is run through the main streets of Bendigo starting in Pall Mall. Crowds of approximately 20,000 line the streets to watch the race. The long time sponsor of the race is the Bendigo Bank. Local athletics stalwart Neil Macdonald co-ordinates the event run by the Bendigo Harriers Athletics Club.
The race has a history of attracting outstanding athletes. Australian Olympic representatives such as Mike Hillard, Malcolm Norwood, Collis Birmingham and Sarah Jamison are just some of the outstanding athletes to win the race. See below for past winners.
