The ‘Five Mills’ is an annual cross country running race in San Vittore Olona, Italy which was first held in 1933 and is named after the five water mills it passes. The course was altered from 10 km to 12 in the late 1930s, in order to accommodate all five mills. The competition which is organised by the Unione sportiva san vittore olona, became an international race in 1952, a junior race was introduced in 1960, and the first international women's race was held in 1971. By the start of this century only the Cozzi and Meraviglia mills remained as part of the course and now only Meraviglia is included.
