Graded mile track races
The Golden Stag Mile is back at Finsbury Park in 2019! Come and try the greatest track distance, the mile.
Now in its sixth year, 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! Previous editions have seen British, European, and even World age group records, with a large crowd cheering our athletes on from lane three of the track.
The races start at 18:45 and the pace of each race goes up as the sun comes down on the longest day of the year. At the end of the night the final races will decide the Golden Stag Mile titles for 2019. We hope you will come for the whole evening to cheer on all of our milers.
Entries for the Golden Stag Mile will remain open until 15 June, or until the races are full. Races will be seeded based on your predicted time.
You can change your predicted time until midnight on 15 June by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The time you put will determine which race you go in, so please be realistic. You can change your predicted time as many times as you like, but no changes will be accepted after 15 June.
Be More Stag!
The last two races of the evening, for elite women and elite men, will be paced. We are pleased to offer the following prize structure for the first three finishers in the elite races.
1st – £100 cash
2nd – £50 cash
3rd – £25 cash
We are offering free entry for athletes with 1500m times of sub 3:55 (men) or 4:40 (women) achieved since 2017. Please contact us at email@example.com
