The photo above shows the growing excitement before the the very first Mirdif Milers run on 28th January 2003. The runners are from left, Anne, A N Other (Our chairman obviously didn't get his email address) Keith Thompson, Ali Denton and Pete Larkin. You will note that Mr Larkin was already advertising his intent to defect and Mrs Scadden didn't even honour the momentous ocasion with NEW SHOES.

Due to contentious image rights only three MM's were able to display our resplendent new kits at Ras Al Kahimah International Half Marathon on Friday 09 Th February 2007. It should have been 4 but our sponsor was far too hung over to contemplate 13 miles even though he claims he was suffering from Asian Flu! In total 8 milers ran,
Amelia, Paul H, Elaine,Dave, Martin, Carol, Matthew and Ian (who probably denies being a miler). One day when the organisers sort out the results (a job made very difficult as the race numbers failed to last the course) we will know how they all finished.
