Coming up

Night of Miles, December 18

Less than a week until the Night of Miles – entries are starting to come in for what should be a fun evening. Many thanks to long time supporter Lifestyle Sports who are kindly providing prizes for the Competitive events. This year we are collecting for Mary Potter Hospice

Entries – for competitive events the entries closes at 11.59pm Wednesday 15th December – no pre-entry required if you just want to run in the kids races, sprints or all-comers mile against Santa.

Volunteers – we are looking to pull together a roster for helping out with entries and scanning vaccine passports. Let me know if you can assist – the more volunteers we get, the more enjoyable it is for everyone! Santa is in training – endurance is not a problem, his focus this week is speed work and sharpening that sprint finish…

Information is here and entries are here.
