Lord Mayors Mile
Lord Mayors Mile
The Lord Mayors Mile is traditionally held on Friday evening closest to the longest day (21st June). The race starts at 7pm with registration from 6pm. The route starts a short walk from the shelter on Lord Mayors Drive in Burnham Beeches, next to the Druid’s Oak. From there we run to the triangle by the main car park / cafe, round the triangle clockwise and then back down Lord Mayors Drive to the finish.
This is a Club Championship event and also a social / family event, so please bring parents / partners / children. All are welcome to join in on the run. We have a BBQ afterwards (weather depending), the club supply drinks, rolls and salad. You just need to bring the meat and veggie options, which will be cooked for you by a willing volunteer.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions we were unable to hold the usual Lord Mayor’s Mile race in 2020 or 2021.
In 2021 we held “Not the Lord Mayors Mile” as a 1km loop of Burnham Park, followed by a BBQ at the Bowls Club. Results 2021
In 2020 we held ‘Not quite the Lord Mayors Mile’. 36 adults (and 13 under-18s) entered this team competition, with 4 groups of 9 members competing to win £150 for their chosen charity. Each team consisted of 1 walker, a maximum of 3 people with sub 22 mins 5k, a minimum of 2 ladies per team and 1 veteran (i.e. over 55s)
Whilst observing the rules of social distancing, each member was required to run their mile sometime between 00:01 on 19th June – noon on 21st June 2020.
