Wimbledon Windmilers Running Club is London's second biggest running club and we think it's the most friendly and welcoming, with over 700 members of all ages and a wide range of abilities. Whether you're an experienced runner or you've just starting out and want to meet people of the same level, then you'll be in great company for training (and socialising!). Read more

Wimbledon Windmilers AGM (2014) Wimbledon Rugby Club Tuesday 6 January 2015, starting at 7.30pm

Dear Members

The Wimbledon Windmilers’ AGM documents are now available for view on the website. You will need to log in and view under Member/Files & Documents/Annual General Meeting – 2014. The AGM pack contains an invite to the AGM explaining this pack (page 2), the Annual Report, AGM Agenda, motions already received and membership renewal information. The audited accounts are given separately. 

Cross country championships - entry deadline this Friday!

All Windmilers are warmly invited to take part in two major cross country races in early 2015: the Surrey Championships (3 January) and the English National Championships (21 February).

These races are two of the most prestigious events on the winter calendar and will attract large fields covering all levels of ability – think London Marathon rather than the Olympics! The national championships are only held in southern England once every three years, so there won't be such a great opportunity to run them until 2018 at the earliest.

Wimbledon Park Track 5K Time Trial

There were many good performances at this track 5K on this cold pre-Christmas morning, including well over 50% personal bests. 
Thanks to Olwen for organising. 

Mob Match in memory of Helen Furze (nee Perkins) - Sat 29th Nov 9am at Nonsuch Park parkrun.

WINDMILER RESULTS                         

MOB MATCH RESULTS - Striders finished top in this friendly competition between our 2 clubs. It was a great turnout from both clubs and an appropriate occasion to remember Helen.

"Hi Jeff

Attached are the results from Saturday’s mobmatch.

I have shown the scoring using two methods : Scores in red are for the scoring system when all runners are counted. Scores in green are for the scoring system when equal numbers of runners from both clubs are counted.

I have simply taken the results as listed by Nonsuch parkrun – so I have only included those runners either listed as Striders or Windmilers. There were a number of Striders who either forgot their barcode or were listed as belonging to another club : these runners have NOT been included.

On behalf of Striders please pass on our thanks to all those Windmilers who ran or supported at the race. It was fantastic that over 100 runners from both clubs were there to make it such a memorable occasion.

Subject to Neil’s agreement, I think it would be great to keep this going as an annual event.

Thanks

Chris Morton

Secretary

Surrey Road League - 2014, final positions

The Surrey Road League 2014 has now run for another year, and it has been excellent to see the popularity of each race. In fact the numbers running across all events have enabled the teams to place very well in the final league tables as well as providing some superb summer team racing across Surrey:

Women's Team - 10th overall out of 31 teams

Men's Team - 12th overall out of 31 teams

These represent the best finishes for both teams for many years and gives a great target to aim for next year!
