Race Description

Sprint it – Run it – Finish it
The Golden Mile, hosted by Stowmarket Striders and sponsored by Beet-it Sports,, Asda, Sweatshop and Stowmarket Town Council. We will see runners of all abilities take to the town’s streets on Saturday 6th September 2014.

Sixty years after Roger Bannister broke the four-minute mile barrier, up to 500 runners will be able to tackle the iconic distance on closed roads through Stowmarket, finishing on the Recreation Ground, on Finborough Road, just as The Stowmarket Beach Party gets going.

The gun-timed race, will start at 2pm at Combs Ford Recreation Ground continue up Ipswich Street, swing around the back of Asda superstore and finish through the impressive Stowmarket Memorial gates, which will be opened especially for the occasion.

There will be medals and goody bags for all finishers, trophies for first, second and third placed male and female. Advance entry fees are only £3 per entrant (£5 on the day) and all profits will go to local hospice fundraiser, Trust Maria.
