Three Milers went to run went to run the marathon, resplendent in the new Kit. There were several "Milers" who were unsure of their allegiance and ran in some other clubs kit. They know who they are and can expect the Emperors wrath to know no bounds.
Congratulations to all who finished the marathon regardless of their club but especially to our Emperor Scadden the Humongous who thrashed his PB to finish in 3-56 ish, High Chancellor Dave who padded safely to C grading for Comrades in 3-38 ish and technical Director Chris McCann with a scorching 2-57 ish. The times are ish as despite the Dubai Marathon web site claiming that results "will be published within 24 hours of the event" results are outstanding at the time of writing. Doesn't that kit look good? Thanks Anne for all the running around to have three sets ready for Friday.

You too can experience the elation of being this happy when you complete the inaugural Mirdif Milers 10 Mile race at 0900 on the 15th February 2008. The course will be four laps of the scenic Mushrif Park which of course means four times up the hill!
Entries will be accepted on the Dubai Road Runners web site from the 01st February 2008. In line with the ethos of our club we intend to give medals to all finishers (subject to being able to purchase what we require in time) with Gold / Silver & Bronze medals to the first three male & female finishers, there will be no age category prizes.
Additionally we intend to hold a club competition where the first 6 finishers from each club count with the lowest aggregate based on finishing positions will win the coveted MIRDIF MILERS trophy to be retained for one year. So please ensure that you enter the club of your affiliation when entering. We hope to see a large turnout from The Creek Striders, Road Runners, ABRaS, EHAC & Abu Dhabi Striders for this new prestigious club competition. Entry fees will be announced shortly.
We hope to see you all there.
