Richmond Harriers are spicing things up this summer with a different kind of 5000m track race at the Collingwood Athletics Track in Melbourne, Victoria on Thursday, 2 February 2017.
The concept is that for each of the 12.5 laps of a 5000m race, one runner is eliminated until there is only one left to take home the prizemoney. There will be tactics, surges, and close finishes. This will be an event that is exciting for athletes and spectators alike.
There is $1000 men's and $1000 women's prize money offered by Advanced Freight Management to keep this interesting.
