No. You don't want a starting block. Starting blocks are for the use of short (running/sprinting) events such as the 70m and 100m. The reason why we use starting blocks is to push off of something to get a fast start. Thus, you don't need/want one for the mile event as you should not be running as fast as you can all the way.
