Sunday run at Eaglemont, I will be doing a very easy 20k recovery run post Two Bays starting tomorrow at 7.30am from tennis courts. The pace will be dictated by whatever my smashed legs will let me do and hopefully no snakes to force me into any jumps yet!
All welcome to join in for what should be a very relaxed run :)

The wonderful 5Ms event is quickly approaching. If you are thinking of running this, and you haven't signed up, can you please do asap so we can have a good gauge on numbers. You won't regret this, for me it's a painful and scary event...for everyone else...amazing!!

Now to the wonderful job of seeding, some of you might be coming off an injury or more than likely feining one. So i can get a guide of recent form, can you please post, or email me your 3 most recent event, parkruns, 10kms, marathons or 56km events :) If you don't want to post here, you can email me at David.Alcock@tal.com.au

It would also be great if as many of you turn up to the summer tan TT and bust you guts out to give me better form. FYI it's scheduled for Thursday 2nd of Feb.

Cheers Bermuda

Hi milers,

A reminder that our 5Ms relay in Red Hill on Feb 12 is fast approaching. If you haven't signed up to this great (free entry) event, get onto it now and organise that leave pass as it's one not to miss.

We need all entries in via the 5Ms event page by 1 Feb so the organisers can prepare the form guide. Also, if you're not a paid up member and want to run this and other events, get your rego sorted asap via the website. www.middaymilers.org/contact-us/

So far we have enough runners to fill 6 teams, let's try and get a few more!

Cheers, Rafa
MMM Secretary

Thanks to the Milers who collected their used runners recently.
Special thanks to Dozer for publicising the collection and to Duff for collecting and running to Docklands with 14 pairs of runners in hand!

The total 18 pairs have been donated to Shoes for Planet Earth, through the Fitzroy foot clinic, Fitzpod.com, and will be passed on to some people who will greatly appreciate them.
Good effort Milers. Keep your used runners for a future collection.

Any suggestions for buying shoes online? It's been a while. I'm a frequent flyer at Wiggle for cycle products but wondering if there's anywhere else I should consider. Thanks. ... See MoreSee Less

The Melbourne Midday Milers

The Midday Milers offer city workers an informal but structured lunch-time training program. The group meets at 12:30pm each weekday at the Tan Track, only a five-minute jog from the Flinders St / Swanston St intersection. All levels of runners are welcome to join us for a variety of casual, easy runs on Monday, Wednesday and Friday or more intense, speed / fartlek / hill sessions on Tuesday and Thursday. To ensure we cater for all standards of runners, Β the Tuesday and Thursday sessions have dedicated A and B groups. To see how this works, refer to our fortnightly Training Program.

The famous Tan Track is one of Melbourne’s most picturesque running venues. We start most runs from the “Pillars of Wisdom” – on the Tan Track just south of the Swan St Bridge.
