Thank you very much for joining us at Iffley Festival of Miles 2022! 

We hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did. Well done to everyone who managed to run a PB in the less than ideal breezy conditions. 

If you didn't managed a PB then don't worry! We will back again next year and look forward to welcoming you back to the legendary track where Sir Roger Bannister set the first sub-4-minute mile, running 3:59.4 in 1954. 

As it was this year Iffley Festival of Miles will be open to runners of all abilities, with paced, seeded races, culminating in an elite race for men and women. Please keep your eye on our social media and on this website for details about next years event. We hope to be able to confirm the meet early next year so you can put it in your diaries and get out there training. 

There have only ever been 8 people at Iffley Road dip below the magical mark of 4min for the Mile. Let's get a big turnout again next year and hopefully someone will be added to that list. For a complete list of all the sub-4min and sub-4:38 Mile runners please see the list below. 

Iffley Festival of Miles looks forward to welcoming you all back to the Sir Roger Bannister Athletics Track and if you have any queries about the event, please get in touch at iffleyfestivalofmiles@gmail.com or contact us on Instagram.
