22 June 2017 | 18:45 | Finsbury Park Stadium | Under UKA Rules
Graded mile track races with errr… hand timing. Sorry!
Provisional results for the 2017 Golden Stag Mile are here.
In the last three years, we have witnessed European and World veteran records, first lap heroes, mid race bursts and final straight battles. Terror in the eyes of many who have underestimated the distance, determination in the never-ending third lap, and elation for those lucky few who find one last kick in the finish straight.
Our event will always be for athletes of all abilities, from ten minutes or more to four minutes or less. The races are graded so that you get to race people of a similar ability as we love a close finish!
This year we are planning a few additions to make our event even better. The brand new track at Finsbury Park is guaranteed to provide some fast times, and after your race you will be able to tuck into Malaysian street food. The event will be even more Golden than normal, as we are celebrating Barnet & District’s Golden Jubilee.
The races start at 18:45 and the pace of each race goes up as the sun comes down. At the end of the night the final races will decide the Golden Stag Mile titles for 2017. We hope you will come for the whole evening to cheer on all of our milers.
Entries for the Golden Stag Mile are now closed. Races will be seeded based on your predicted time. You may change your predicted time up to 18 June by emailing email@example.com. Entries are online only and numbers are to be collected on the night from 18:00.
Meeting Directors – John Clarke, Dan Davies, Will Morris
