Roadhoggs are putting on Run England-affiliated beginner running sessions every Wednesday @ 7.00pm. These free sessions, organised in conjunction with the University of Leicester, take place at the two University Sports Centres (University Rd and Manor Rd), are run by qualified leaders and are suitable for complete beginners. If you're interested in coming along, please contact us.
Congratulations to Afra on a great run in the Loch Ness Marathon. Sub-4 at the first attempt is a brilliant effort!
We're now back at Manor Road for the winter.
A new version of the course for the traditional season
closer met with almost unanimous approval. Although two of the
killer hills had been replaced by something gentler, the race remains a
proper challenge. We were missing one or two regulars but were able to
welcome James Boyd and Stephen Dunne, who both made accomplished debuts
for the club. Mark R managed to break 60 minutes; a real landmark
achievement and a great reward for an excellent season. Rae came back
from Newcastle to spearhead our ladies team and the 'super seven'
completed their full house of 11 LRRL races; Alison, Ben, Dan, Dave L,
Ferrante, Lee and Mark R.
Chris Peach has added another fantastic achievement to his impressive running CV by completing The Ridgeway Challenge; 86 miles in a little over 23 hours. At least he confessed to feeling shattered at the end.......
Jerry is a superb athlete but his heart and determination are second to none. Inspired by a charity set up by a work colleague in memory of his lost son (The Bodie Hodges Foundation), he has just completed the full, 102.5 mile, Leicestershire Round footpath in a jaw-dropping 22 hours and 41 minutes (an 'un-official' record for the feat). While conditions for the first 50 miles were ideal, much of the remainder were completed in energy-sapping rain as the remains of Hurricane Bertha hit the UK. Years of planning and rehearsal have gone into realising this most personal of challenges. Jerry, we are proud of you; you are truly a one-off!
There were twenty finishers in the Annual Club 10K Handicap. It was a beautiful evening and the scenic nature of the course was appreciated by all (even if the undulations/hills weren't universally popular). In all, 8 members managed to beat their handicap time but the clear winners were Steve Palmer and Vicky Sutton. Congratulations to you both (the handicapper will have his revenge, next year!).
A humid morning but thankfully the temperature didn't reach the heights of recent days. A tough one, with plenty of climbing, but some lovely countryside and extensive views to take your mind off the slog. Holiday season claimed a few but we still managed 22 finishers and plenty of good runs. Provisional resultsV2.
'Flaming June' finally arrived to bathe Swithland in its traditional sunshine. Zorro celebrated his local race with the VM50 prize and Mark Ramsden was on hand to pick up his trophy for finishing 4th Senior man in the Winter League. Valerie, Dan Barnes, Dave Bullivant, John Hallissey and Martin all made their first league starts of the year and there was also a very welcome return by Colin Bowpitt, who has been suffering with long-tern injury problems. Draft results.
