UQ Sport 1500m Classic

Lace up those sneakers and start jiggling those muscles – the UQ Sport 1500m Classic is here!

Kicking off the summer track and field season, the 1500m Classic has been a fixture in the Queensland Athletics calendar since its’ inception in 2004, held at the UQ Sport Athletic Centre Olympic-standard track on November 3.

As the name suggests, the event features a range of 1500 metre events, from race walking through to elite men’s and women’s running races, with the program boasting 19 races in total. Athletes of all ages flock from across Queensland to take part, from primary and secondary school age, to Masters and Open age groups.

This year we’re ramping things up, with a whopping $6000 overall prize pool up for grabs, including the $1500 prize that will be pocketed by the male and female elite race winners – talk about incentive! We’ll also be live streaming the elite races, meaning athletes, family and friends from all over the world will have the chance to tune in.
