One Mile Celebrations

Celebrate An Historic Sporting Moment

Whanganui was made world famous on the night of January 27 1962 when Peter Snell not only broke the four minute barrier for the mile in New Zealand but set a new world record of 3m 54.4s.

Since that date the four minute mark has been broken 63 times at Cooks Gardens by 41 athletes from around the world.

It is planned to celebrate this occasion as an annual basis, a festival of running incorporating an International Track Meeting (“Sir Peter Snell International Track Meeting”) together with a mass participation mile (“Snell’s Mile Challenge”) as a community event.
