2011 GOAL Mile


GOAL has announced Leopardstown Racecourse as the location for this year’s flagship GOAL Mile on Christmas morning. Leopardstown will replace Belfield as the venue for GOAL’s largest annual Mile.

“We are extremely happy that Leopardstown has generously agreed to host the event,” said GOAL’s Lisa O’Shea, “particularly as it will be the day before their annual 4-day Christmas Racing Festival. 

“The venue is a perfect fit; Leopardstown is famous across the world for being host to many great events over the years. It is a very convenient location and there is plenty of parking. We really hope that all the people who normally run the Mile at Belfield, and anyone else in the area, will come down and join us on Christmas morning.

“We would also like to thank UCD for allowing us to stage the event at Belfield for the last 28 years and helping us to raise hundreds of thousands for the poorest of the poor in the process.”

The Leopardstown GOAL Mile will take place from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Christmas Day.
