The mile championship will take place on Wednesday 3rd June at the Harrier Centre athletics track in Ewell. Please be warmed up and ready to run by 7:30pm.

Please register here ahead of the race. In your registration, please provide a predicted finish time so that we can put runners into balanced waves as there will be too many people for everyone to run at once.

The track is in Poole Road recreation ground. It can be found by turning right into Ruxley Lane off the A 240 and then left into Scotts Farm Road which becomes Poole Road. The recreation ground and athletics track are on your left about half a mile after leaving Ruxley Lane.
