Burnie 1600m (Burnie Mile)
The Burnie mile is shaping up to be a huge event. For the first time for a long time there will be two athletes off scratch. Ryan Gregson and Tassie gun Stewart "Mayor of King Island" McSweyn. No one has won the Burnie mile from scratch since 1967 - 50 years ago.

McSweyn 21, won the Devonport 1600m off 20m, so he's been brought back to scratch, along side Australian champion & 1500m national record holder Ryan Gregson. His winning time at Devonport was 4-04.24.

If either Gregson or McSweyn break 4mins in the Burnie mile there is a $3,000 bonus on offer.

Burnie Gift track gets rolled & mowed after the semis in readiness for the final.
