“In preparation of the 2015 KPMG Front Street Mile, formally known as the KPMG Bermuda Invitational Mile, the BNAA will hold their annual trial event on Friday, November 28, 2014 at the Bermuda National Sports Centre. The event is for multiple age groups ranging from primary school to seniors.

“In order to compete in this international competition, running enthusiasts and elitists must qualify for a place. Similar to previous years, the fastest 20 runners under 8 minutes will be invited to participate in the 2015 KPMG Front Street Mile on Friday, January 16, 2015.

“Mike Charles, Race Director states, because of the many requests from runners who miss The Trials because of travel obligations, concessions may be granted if the athlete can produce evidence of travel and dates of reservation. In addition official results of like distances run within the calendar year. Local athletes living overseas may be considered if they submit official results of competition in distances from 800m through 3000m.

“Discussing the ongoing commitment to the community, Neil Patterson, Chairman of KPMG in Bermuda states, “KPMG in Bermuda is excited to again host the trial as an avenue for local athletes to earn a spot in the KPMG Front Street Mile – one of the island’s most important running events. The initiative continues to be a huge success for the Bermuda athletic community, and KPMG is proud to support the Bermuda National Athletics Association [BNAA] in delivering this high-calibre event.”
