Training: Wednesday 30th July

Instead of training, we'll be holding our annual club handicap race. We have a new course for this year, starting and finishing in Illston on the Hill (LE7 9EG). Route. Don't be shy; everyone will have a chance and even if you can't or don't fancy running, come along and help. There's a pleasant village pub (serving food until 9.00) for the post race social, too.

Hermitage 10K

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.

Swithland

Mark Ramsden

'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.

Matchmakers

Miguel + Sara

Many congratulations to Miguel and Sara on their wedding. We are proud to think that Roadhoggs played a part in bringing them together! We wish you every happiness in your new life together and the best of luck for the move south.

Well Done Will!

Whilst some Hoggs were taking care of business in Edinburgh, it was Will who summoned the spirit of that Scottish hero Robert The Bruce. He was gutted when his plans for a sub-3 Marathon were (literally) blown off course in Blackpool, recently. Not one to give up, he swapped the elegant moves of the Tower Ballroom for the more elemental energy of the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon and stormed it; taking 10 minutes off his PB and smashing the 3-hour barrier.

Liverpool was clearly a good place to be; Ferrante set a new PB and Fabio made an impressive debut over the classic distance. Up in Edinburgh, Steve R and Stuart did well on their debuts; Steve showing how the strong endurance base of a mountain sports enthusiast translates into Marathon speed. Barbara showed she can run a good Marathon on minimal training and Dan set a new PB.

 

Mark Hits the Top Ten

Mark R

Mark has been in a rich vein of form in the last year and he just keeps on getting better. Despite the rather warm conditions he broke in to the top 10 for the second time time this season in the West End 8 at Queniborough. Will and James D finished well up and John D, Steve W and Ferrante joined them in the top 100. We had a good turnout from the ladies but they found it hard going in the heat. Full Results + Tables.
