Firstly good luck to our Chairman Sir Scads of Mirdifovia in the Zurich marathon on Saturday, Provided he manages to bag a entry. No doubt he will be checking the club funds in the numbered swiss bank account as well.
Aprils Social will be held at Dominics on the 09th April.
There will be a 15Kish Saturday run this week 01st April, meet at 0600 Uptown Primary School. The following two Saturdays both myself and Martin are away so Saturday runs will be dependent on Colin or Tony taking the lead, emails will be sent!
Monday runs will continue as usual meeting 1900 at Uptown Primary school, route to be decided by whoever gets there first!

The Milers massed at Mushrif on Friday to ensure that Club Honour was upheld. Mirdif Milers A of Chris & Tony set the days fastest time for 3 laps of the park 48 mins 56 seconds. Second fastest were Mirdif Milers B Dave, Keith & Jim 52-46, Mirdif Milers C of Dominic, Malcolm & Chris Vernon were third fastest in 55-09. Mirdif Milers D of Amelia , Carol & Chris Veron (Again, keen this lad) finished in 59-34. Mirdif Milers E of Matthew (Extremely Hungover) Martin & Colin trotted to a 63-16 and last but not least the Mirdif Milers F of Elaine , Dave F & Dean sprinted to a 58-47 finish. Sadly all 6 teams were spectacularly useless at predicting their times and we won NOWT.
So in true Milers style we went to the Irish village to celebrate!

Suffering from a Split Personality, unsure which club is for you? Dubai's most forward thinking club has the solution for you, Joint Venture Vests! If you really don't want to offend anyone we can probably arrange the same catching design but with a Road Runners Back panel (this could be the only time you will ever see a road Runners vest in front of a Miler!).
Mirdif Milers the club with a solution for all problems, including the saturday run for those unable to make Fridays at the DCS run. Come run with us at 0600 on a saturday. for a scenic trip through Dubai's mountains. As you can see numbers are rising!
