This is a big shout out to the Milers who are embarking on Oxfam on Friday morning!

- On one Miler team there is Tony Hally, Greg Roche, Daniel Hall and Seb Payette (shooting for 14 hours or under).

- On the other Miler team, there is Martin Edwards, Matthew Woods, Nick Turner and I (shooting for 11-12 hours).

Veteran Oxfamer and Miler, Glenn Goodman, is also anchoring another team of non-milers.

It is also a shout out to the people who donated to get each of the teams to the start line (thanks, Geoff Fisher and Richard Does. most recently), and to the volunteers who will support us to glory (and pain!).

Thanks, Milers - just keep being you!

parkrun results 17/3/18. Nice turnout at Karkarook with a big PB for Daniel Hall ably paced by Matthew Woods and a cracking run by Peter Rushen with an 84.28 age grade %.

Must also mention Bruce Arthur’s run at Studley Park, close to his PB and equivalent to a sub 18 on the flat but just beaten by Tim Bryant the 3rd fastest runner of all time there, who was pushing a child in a pram. A bit further back Mark Purvis was strolling to his 5th age category record for the year.

Highlights include:

Good luck to all the Milers running R4TK tomorrow. Not only is it a great event, it is for one great cause supporting the Children's Hospital. I've seen first hand what a great job they do.

We also have a title to defend in the team's event, so run hard Milers!

Cheers Bermuda

One of the best things about doing parkrun is sometimes the photos that can give you some insight into your running form. Do you look relaxed and tall, shoulders even etc. Well today thanks to Scott Stacey who alerted me to the shot, i got a photo of me in full flight and barely an issue with my running form to be seen. So eat your heart out B1 Luke Goodman. Come talk to me when you look this good. ... 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,  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.
