Our friends at the NBA are inviting you to come and join us in the new Jr. NBA Mile in central London on Saturday 23rd September 2023!
The Jr. NBA Mile is a dedicated wave of runners in the The Vitality Westminster Mile. This special running event was launched by London Marathon Events in partnership with Westminster City Council in 2013 as a legacy event from the 2012 Olympic Games. Held in the heart of London, the race takes place on a spectacular course that starts on The Mall and finishes in front of Buckingham Palace. All participants will receive a bespoke medal to mark their mile achievement, as well as free access to the activities and entertainment at the Vitality Wellness Festival held at Green Park.
Every participant in the Jr. NBA dedicated waves will get a FREE Jr. NBA t-shirt and a FREE basketball at the “Jr. NBA Zone” that will be located at Green Park. The Larry O’Brien Trophy will also be on display offering fans the chance for a selfie with the NBA’s championship trophy. Parents and guardians can register for tickets to the Jr. NBA wave at no cost, however all Jr. NBA runners have the option to donate their £7 entry fee to Lia’s Wings, a national charity that provides hospital air transfers for children to ensure that babies and critically ill children can access specialist treatment and care, wherever they are in the UK.
The Jr. NBA Mile is open to children from 11–14. Youth runners will need to be accompanied by an adult, or 1 adult to a group of 10 youth runners.
