Records Tumble in Beautiful Bradgate

A big thank you to the Rangers and Trustees for making us welcome and to all of the Roadhoggs and friends who helped. The feedback from runners has been fantastic. A record 405 men and 221 ladies finished the race and there was a bumper crop of youngsters too. As well as staging the race, Roadhoggs had 34 finishers (another record). Here are some pictures of the race; feel free to copy and share. Results

Beginner Running: Everyone Welcome

Run England LogoRoadhoggs 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 University Sports Centre on Manor Rd, are run by qualified leaders and are suitable for complete beginners. If you're interested in coming along, please contact us. We also cater for 'improvers' too, so why not give us a try?

Roadhoggs on the Ridge

It may be the furthest venue of the series but Sinai Park saw our biggest turnout of the season; 26. Harry Mullen and Fabio ran their first cross country races for us and Harry topped this by being first Hogg home. For the ladies, Becca put in another strong performance and those following included Jackie; making a welcome return to cross country, following her serious injury. Results.

Hoggs on the Heath

A much better turnout this week, as the Derby Runner caravan made its way to Bagworth Heath; 6 ladies and 13 men. As ever, there was plenty of mud at 'Bogworth' but thankfully, lots of good ground as well. James and Becca B led the teams again and Ben survived his first taste of the muddy stuff. Results and Kim's report.

Athlete of the Year

Mark Ramsden

Congratulations to Mark Ramsden, who was voted 'Athlete of the Year' by the members for his outstanding performances in the LRRL.

What a Weekend!

Whilst not quite rivalling Heinz, Roadhoggs were involved in an amazing variety of events this weekend; Parkrun, Autumn Shakespeare Marathon and Half, Leicester University Relays, Derby Runner XC, Beacon Hill Trail HM, Shillington Shuffle Trail Marathon, Leeds Abbey Dash and The Winter Beast. Congratulations to James B, Stephen D, Steve R and Ludo for setting impressive PBs.


Craig N  Fabio

Despite the windy conditions, several Hoggs managed to pick up PBs; Craig and Fabio in the full and James D, Jon M, Steve W, Steve B, Drew and Emma in the half. Congratulations too, to Mark R on his GFA time and to Hannah, who broke 2 hours in her first HM.

Monster Run

Congratulations to Afra on a great run in the Loch Ness Marathon. Sub-4 at the first attempt is a brilliant effort!
