Downs Runs

During autumn and winter, these take place roughly fortnightly on Sunday, usually at 9:00 am, from Findon car park for 7-14 miles on South Downs, so good for hill training and stamina. 


Evening pub runs between April and September. (Details here and via email.)

Other runs

Membership of Mel's Milers allows you to use the car parking, changing and shower facilities of the Bluecoat Sports Centre at Christs Hospital on any day of the week free of charge. Members must stick to the main public access roads and footpaths into and out of the Sports Centre when running, unless joining a coached running session with Mel, when other parts of the school grounds may be used.


The sixteenth running of the Mel's Milers 10k will take place on Sunday 25th March 2018.
Race now full. There will be no entries on the day.
