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.

The Mile on the Track 2019

If you haven't been before - the track is by the lake in Wimbledon Park.  There are gates to the park on Wiimbledon Park Road, Revelstoke Road, and Home Park Road, they should all be open. There are gates to the track itself at each side, both should be open.

A map locating Wimbledon Park track is here.

You can get there by tube (Wimbledon Park or Southfields).

After we have finished we will go to the Pig and Whistle pub.
