UQ Athletics Club 1500m Classic

26 Oct 23

Location: UQ Sports & Athletics Centre


The 1500m Classic returns to its traditional home at the UQ Sport Track on Thursday, October 26th, 2023

Since its inception in 2004, the UQ Sport 1500m Classic has been a regular fixture on the Queensland Athletics calendar.

The event consists of only 1500m races, with more than 250 athletes entered across over 20 events for school-age, masters, race walking, and elite-level competitors.

The UQ Sport Athletics Track has re-opened after receiving a re-lay and a resurface earlier in the year. The new surface should be conducive to some fast running.

In 2023, a minimum prize pool of $2000 will be on offer to placegetters across both the Men’s &
Women’s 1500m Classic races. Vouchers or products and plaques will be presented to place-getters in the other divisional races.
