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.
The Club was 30 years old in August and we'd like you to help us celebrate! You are invited to our combined Presentation Evening and 30th Anniversary Bash @ Leicestershire County Cricket Club on Saturday 29th November (7pm). The theme of the evening will be 'back to the 80's'; there will be a hot buffet, music and entertainment. Tickets are just £10 for adults and free for kids. See Dan Bannatyne or contact us for tickets/details. It would be great to see lots of old friends, so if you know any ex-members, please spread the word.
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killer hills had been replaced by something gentler, the race remains a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.......
Jerry is a superb athlete but his heart and determination are second to none. Inspired by a charity set up by a work colleague in memory of his lost son (The Bodie Hodges Foundation), he has just completed the full, 102.5 mile, Leicestershire Round footpath in a jaw-dropping 22 hours and 41 minutes (an 'un-official' record for the feat). While conditions for the first 50 miles were ideal, much of the remainder were completed in energy-sapping rain as the remains of Hurricane Bertha hit the UK. Years of planning and rehearsal have gone into realising this most personal of challenges. Jerry, we are proud of you; you are truly a one-off!
