Following the success of previous years, Swiss sports brand On has again teamed up with the unique running event Night of the 10,000m PB’s, as part of the brand-new global series, On Track Nights, which promises fast times, loud crowds and festival vibes.
A high-octane evening of running, the Night of the 10,000m PB’s attracts world-class athletes and thousands of spectators with its unique atmosphere and spectacular festival-style entertainment.
The World Athletics Silver event is free for all spectators to attend and takes place at Parliament Hill Athletics track on the 20th of May 2023.
The Night of the 10,000m PB’s follows “Track Fest” in Los Angeles as the second event in On’s new global series ‘On Track Nights’. The series provides a platform for high-performing and passionate runners to beat their PBs, gather valuable points for World Championship and Olympic qualification and most importantly, to set the standard for a new kind of athletics event that brings its stars closer to fans.
The series will host events in Los Angeles, London, Paris, Vienna and Melbourne, championing community-focused approaches to high-performance racing.
The evening plays host to 8 spectacular track races, culminating in the Women’s and Men’s UK Athletics 10,000m championships, starting at 20:45 and 21:25 respectively.
Spectators can soak up the atmosphere while watching all of the action unfold, with pop-up circus displays from Fit-Up production, live music and DJs, as well as cheering tunnels on the track, infield spectating and pyrotechnic displays all in action. There will also be a number of licensed food & drink vendors to keep the party in full flow.
Alongside the athletics, On will be showcasing their latest in performance footwear, with try-ons for the brand-new Lightning CloudSpike and CloudBoom Echo 3 available as part of the in-field entertainment.
