Training 17/2/16

This week we'll be running the East Park Road route (in reverse): 6.4 miles, 5.3 miles and 4.3 miles.

DRL Grace Dieu

Wot no travelator? Grace Dieu went 'back to the future' by returning to a 2-lap format. A revised start and finish meant we were spared the dreaded travelator sprint at the end. The course had a little of everything and a bit more of mud and water but was a fair challenge. Even the drizzly rain couldn't spoil the sweet taste of Trudy's scientifically formulated post race recovery food (cake). Draft results.

Beginner Running Group

Run England logoWe have a beginner running group now under way. The group meet on Wednesdays, 7pm at the Roger Bettles Sports Centre on Manor Road, Oadby. If you're interested, contact Alison, our Beginner Running Coordinator (07850 270614).

New Year Enters with a Splash

Team shot

The hardcore mud lovers were out for the annual post-Christmas burn up; the Huncote Hash. A good chunk of the course was under water and more was falling from the skies but it was great fun, as ever. The race was a sell out; people falling over themselves to get soaked and comprehensively muddy (mud is obviously 'the new black'!).

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.

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

Jackie

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.
