A big thank you to all the participants in the inaugural Burton Mile. It was a very exciting event with a winning time of 4:13.82 by Andrew Middleton and 5:12.06 by Jennifer Blindert. Complete results are available here.
Our excitement is building as we review the race roster. There will definitely be runners awarded the $1200 prize money, and the Top Ten finishers male and female look to be very faster as well. Even if you don’t believe you can be a money winner or Top Ten finisher, this is a great opportunity to see how fast you can run a certified mile. We look forward to seeing everyone.
The Burton Mile course has been USATF Certificed as accurate to one mile. You can view the certification at USATF.
It is very exciting for us to see people are starting to register for the inaugural Burton Mile. Currently it is all women!
We have increased the minimum required time for women to be eligible for prize money from a 6:00 minute mile to a 7:00 minute mile. We look forward to more women competing.
