Friday 20 July 2018 | 18:45 | Finsbury Park Stadium | Under UKA Rules
Graded mile track races with electronic timing.
The Golden Stag Mile is back at Finsbury Park in 2018! Come and try the greatest track distance, the mile.
Now in its fifth 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. At the end of the night the final races will decide the Golden Stag Mile titles for 2018. 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 13 July, or until the races are full. Races will be seeded based on your predicted time.
You can change your predicted time until midnight on 13 July by emailing BDACEntries@pm.me. 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 13 July.
