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.
Congratulations to Mark Ramsden, who was voted 'Athlete of the Year' by the members for his outstanding performances in the LRRL. Other award winners were; Trudy Sharpe and Mark Ramsden (Road Running), Vicky Salt and Steve Robinson (Most Improved), Vicky Sutton and Dale Jenkins (Cross Country). There were also Special Chairman's Awards for Ludo Renou (2.33 Marathon), Jerry Wilkes (Solo Round Leicester) and John Stew (10 Marathons in 10 days). To mark the club's 30th anniversary, life memberships were awarded to Baz Barratt, Barry Waterfield, Keith Dakin and Alison Lodwick.
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. We also cater for 'improvers' too, so why not give us a try?
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.
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.
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killer hills had been replaced by something gentler, the race remains a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.......
