In this important anniversary mile year - thought might be good to update this thread with any mile races that people know of please? There's obviously the Westminster, and the City of London miles, and there is an Iffley mile. Any other track ones? Or road? It's surprisingly hard to find anything on google!
Perhaps not surprisingly there are a few listed amongst the British Milers' Club open meetings throughout the summer. I might have to have a go myself since it's not a track distance I've attempted before.
There's also the 3 x 1M relay Self-Transcendence races in Battersea Park which are good fun, although don't count for an official measured mile time for Po10 (if that sort of thing bothers you.)
Never run it, but one every month in Ealing...
This one in Gloucestershire
Thanks all - tried runbritain, and did find the ealing mile, but not easy to get to on a fri afternoon if you're not in London.
I did look at the BMC - there is one near me in May that has a vets category - does anyone know how it would be for someone of about 6 min mile standard? - I don't want to be laughed out of there.
I will also try the BMAF/SWVAC. I am running in the Avon League later this summer, but only 1500, no mile, and I really wanted the proper mile this year, ideally with some feel of commemoration of the Bannister mile.
The forest one looks lovely Rob, but probably unwise the day after my Boston M, even if I could get back. I wonder if they'll do another later in the season?
