Mel’s Milers Jogging Club
Initially established in the year 2000 by Melanie Marlow at Bluecoats Sports Club, in response to the need for a
daytime running club with creche facilities for parents with young children.
Since then, the club has flourished and now boasts around 70 members, both men and women, aged between 21 and
80, of all abilities. Many of our members enjoy participating in races ranging from 10K to Ultra distance.
Our location enables us to take advantage of scenic road and trail routes in the beautiful Sussex countryside.
Entry to the 2022 Mel’s Milers 10k is now closed.
There is ample free parking available at our HQ at Bluecoats Sports Club at Christ’s Hospital School, and Mel’s Milers
members can use Bluecoats Sports Club’s shower and changing facilities free of charge and the creche for a small fee.
We organise our own 10K once a year, raising substantial sums of money for charity.
We are affiliated to England Athletics.
We are a friendly and sociable running club who look forward to having a coffee and a chat after a run! We hold many
social events throughout the year including pub runs in the summer, parties, movie nights and theatre trips and we have
a thriving book club.
The club’s annual abroad trip, which involves running a half marathon in a European city, is also very popular.
