Dale Does It!

DaleAt a glittering ceremony Roadhogg Stalwart Dale Jenkins was crowned 'Athlete of the Year' by his fellow runners. He had already won 'Male Road Running Athlete of the Year', a clear indication that Captain Rambo had his finger on the pulse. During the season, Dale set PBs at 6 miles, 10K, 10 miles and Half Marathon. Science says you get slower as you get older; clearly Dale knows something we don't! He also hit Gold Standard at all distances up to 20 miles with the exception of 7 miles (even he couldn't overcome the heat at Hungarton!). A string of age-group prizes were nicely topped off by his first LRRL award; 2nd V55.

Emma Raven was Female Road Runner of the Year and our 'Most Improved Athletes' were Clare and Ben; I'll round up their achievements in the next newsletter.

The cross country awards were won by James and Becca Bostock (now sadly moved to Yorkshire).

Finally, there was a 'Chairman's Award' for Trudy Sharpe in recognition of her solo Equinox (thus confirming her place in the Roadhogg pantheon of ultra runners) and her culinary contribution to the success of our cross country teams.

Thanks to Mandy for the photo.

Under the Radar

It has just come to light that Nathan Adams has been flying the Roadhogg flag down Market Harborough way and banging in some quick parkruns. He's down to an impressive 18.03 and has notched up a first and a couple of second places in recent weeks; well done Nathan.

Wednesday Training

We're now back at Manor Road until the spring. This week (Wednesday 2nd), we'll be doing 'Marydene'. Routes: 6.3 miles, 5.2 miles and 4 miles.

Award Winners

Congratulations to Emma Raven (3rd V45), Jackie Brown (2nd V50) and Dale Jenkins (2nd V55) in the LRRL Summer League.

Champions of Division 2


Our magnificent hoggettes have bounced back from last year's relegation by storming to both the senior and veteran LRRL Division 2 titles. Well done to captain Jackie and all of your fantastic team! Congratulations also go to Clare, Alison, Fabio, Dale, Dave L, Ben, Ferrante and Chris who were 100% in this year's LRRL.

Rapid Roadhoggs


The Hoggs were out in force at the final race in the Vicky Park 5K series, where no fewer fourteen toed the line; the chance to set a 5K standard proved a real draw. Jackie and Dale bagged Golds and Robin, Richard C and Clare got PB's. Jackie also walked off with the VL50 prize. All in all, a good evening's work.
