    Magic Mile, Kit Night, EGM and Pizza

    Club Event

    Event Details

    Start Time: 18:00
    Location: Gaterfield, Winchester
    Team Manager: Andy Parkinson


    As previously mentioned, training on Tuesday, June 25th, will be a little bit different. It will include a club EGM, a visit from our kit partners, Alton Sports and, of course, the staging of WRC’s Magic Mile Handicap Stakes.

    The mile is an iconic distance in GB athletics, synonymous with some of the biggest names in middle-distance running. This will be your chance to race over this distance on a fast, flat grass track. To confirm your attendance at the mile and EGM, please follow the link to complete the short form, registering your name and most recent/fastest 5k time (or estimate if you do not have one). Each heat will be run as a handicap race. Whilst each runner will get an individual mile time, they will also be racing to win their heat.

    The venue will be Gaterfield as normal and the schedule for the evening will be as follows:

    • 5.30-6.15pm – individual warm-up
    • 6.15-7.00pm – 6-8 heats of the WRC Magic Mile Handicap Heats
    • 7.00-7.15pm warm-down
    • 7.15-7.45pm EGM
    • 7.45-8.00pm – pack-up and home to watch the Euros (if you like)

    Pizza will be provided by Pie in Winchester (which will be very nice!) and Alton Sports will be there with a range of running kit to view and try.

    Please submit your entry by 12.00 pm Saturday 22nd June (giving you a chance to have one more time trial at a Parkrun). The heat’s timetable will be published on Sunday 23rd June. When not racing, you will also have the opportunity to help with timekeeping, so if you have a stopwatch, bring it with you.
