Since its inception in 2004, the UQ Sport 1500m Classic has been a regular fixture in the Queensland Athletics calendar, kicking off the track and field season!
The 2018 event, to be held at the UQ Sport Athletics Centre on Thursday 1 November, features a range of 1500m events – including school-age, masters, race walking, and elite-level races.
A total prize pool of $8,200 will be up for grabs, with the winners of the showcase Men’s and Women’s 1500m Classic races receiving $1,500 each.
Year-on-year, the 1500m Classic attracts hundreds of competitors from all over Australia, with all races seeded based on performance.
Selected races at this year’s event will be live streamed on the UQ Sport Facebook page.
