We've been lucky with the weather so far this year, so I guess we were due a wet one. Doing the first couple of miles into a howling gale was a bit of a challenge but it was fun having the wind at our backs on the way back. Another great turnout, even if some did leave it rather late....Draft results
To celebrate the clocks going forward and the start of summer training, we'll be having a 'hat night' on Wednesday 1st April. Come for a run wearing the silliest hat you can lay your hands on! Afterwards, we'll be retiring to the Cow & Plough for chip butties. Routes.
Roadhoggs are putting on Run England-affiliated beginner running sessions every Wednesday @ 7.00pm. These free sessions 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?
We hope everyone enjoyed their race today; results are now on the Network website.
A big thank you to everyone who turned out for the club in Sunday's big Derby Runner relegation battle. James Bostock ran superbly for 5th and our ladies packed well to give us the edge on the day. In the end though, we lost out after extra time and penalties, so we'll be competing in Division 2 next year. Results. Kim's report.
Twenty three Roadhoggs ran at a rather muddy Bosworth Country Park. In the club battle it was another Bostock double although Becca, suffering from sickness, had to dig deep to deny Vicky and second successive victory. Results. Kim's report.
Another beautiful day for running, another event beating its entry record and everybody sharing cars to avert calamity; a pretty average Sunday, really! Among the very healthy Roadhogg entry of 36 there were plenty of people taking advantage of the conditions to record good times on what is a fair, but by no means quick, course. Mark R and Dale bagged Gold Standards again and early reports suggest Ben and Mark Coulson may have broken their PBs. Draft results (Network website).
A record 40 Roadhoggs took to the roads of Barrow for the first race in the 2015 Leicestershire Road Running League. The 670 starters were also a record for the event. We were blessed with excellent weather at it almost felt like spring by the end. Brian, Caroline, Mark Coulson, Michael, Naomi and Steve B all made their debuts, Peter and Nick made very welcome comebacks and Jackie ran her first league race for nearly a year. There seemed to be a real buzz at the end with lots of people happy with their first blast of the year. Results and tables (Network website).

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. Kim's report.
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 and Kim's report.
