The Medway Mile returns for 2023 to Medway Park, Gillingham.
We’re taking the Medway Mile to different locations across Medway over the next few years to make sure as many local communities as possible can enjoy the fun of one of the biggest community sporting events in Medway. This year’s event will remain in Gillingham, and take place in and around Medway Park on Friday, 21 July.
The event will have all the free family fun you’ve come to expect at the Medway Mile - free sports activities showcasing local sports, children's races on the Medway Park athletics track, food and entertainment and a mass participation mile.
