Mill Hill Mile Race 2013


Brendan Teer takes men’s title as Joanne Mills retains ladies top prize:

On Tuesday 3rd September 2013 nearly one hundred and forty athletes turned out for the traditional Mill Hill Mile road race in Castlewellan. The annual event, which see’s competitors start in Annsborough and run one mile uphill to the Market House in Castlewellan, has enjoyed somewhat of a resurgence in recent years, quite possibly due to the impressive amount of Junior athletes now getting involved.
