It is with Considerable pleasure that Morton Games can confirm that both Behan and Associates, Legal Costs Accountants and Commercial Hygiene Services have agreed to continue their generous sponsorship of the Morton Mile, the flag ship event at Morton Games.
Both companies have been loyal supporters of Morton Games since 2011. The meet director of Morton Games said: 'to have the continued commitment of Behan and Associates and Commercial Hygiene Services to the Morton Games and in particular the Morton Mile is a source of great pride to all the Morton Games team. These loyal sponsors have been on board since the outset and their commitment and support of Morton Games is exceptional. We are delighted to have both companies once again as joint sponsors of the Morton Mile. The managing directors of these companies have of course a long association with Clonliffe Harriers and the sport of athletics and to have them with us once again means that we can continue to strive forward and bring the best milers possible to Dublin on August 21'.
The Morton Mile has been the most prolific producer of sub- 4 miles in Ireland. Since the first Morton memorial mile in 1970 no less then 144 sub 4 have been run in this race. The first sub- 4 Morton mile was by Kip Kieno (KEN) 3.59.2 in 1970 and the 144th came from Corey Bellmore (CAN) 3.59.98 for 11th place in 2018. With the caliber of athletes looking to race in the mile this year the number of sub 4s may well crash through the 150 later this Summer.
