The run is clockwise around Milland and is three laps. Prizes are awarded to the fastest times of the night and also spot prizes are awarded to runners at the discretion of the marshals. It is a great way to gauge the improvements runners have made over the winter months and there is plenty of encouragement from both runners, marshals and those watching.
Milland Road Race
Held in late March or early April on a Tuesday evening, this event pitches Hailsham Harriers against one another on a three lap course of Milland. Milland is the location for a great deal of our Winter training. One lap is about 1200m so the race is approx 2.3 miles in total. Entrance fee is £1, the race is open to Harriers and non-members may run as a guest of the club. We meet directly at the top of Milland at the point where we finish the dreaded hill reps during our training sessions and there’s no meeting at Summerheath Hall on that day.
