Windmile

The club organizes two different mile races a year.

In the spring we have the classic Windmile - one from the earlier days of the club, revived in 2011 after a break of a few years.  Here you're running an approximate mile on a trail on the Common, in a roughly straight line.

In the autumn we have the Windmile on the track - a  measured mile (just over 4 laps) on a smooth surface.

We want to see as many Windmilers as possible of different speeds running in each of these races!

For 2019: 

  • Windmile on the common: Thursday 20 June 2019.
  • Windmile on the track: Friday 27 September 2019, followed by social at Pig & Whistle.
