HRRL : Alton 10 May 13 2018

The team positions of both the Southampton’s mens and ladies after the Salisbury 10 are as follows.

LADIES                                                                                                                                                     Winchester & District 21pts                                                                                                                   Southampton Athletic Club 22pts                                                                                                           Hedge End 25pts

With only four races remaining the race to the league title is essentially a three horse race with the top three gapping the rest by a significant margin. Winchester has a slender lead but Southampton have assembled a crack team to reverse the situation with Rebecca Moore Karla Borland and Sarah Kingston participating.

MEN                                                                                                                                                        Overton  20pts                                                                                                                                     Lordshill 25pts                                                                                                                                       Winchester & District 28pts                                                                                                                   Southampton Athletic Club 45pts

The men have essentially guaranteed their place in Division 1 for another season but have fallen well short of expectation. Mens entrants include Andy Herman Guy Brown Scott Augur and Rich Waldron looking for a brace of victories after his Salisbury success.

There have been 529 entries for Alton 10 at the time of writing and the race is still open for entries at http://www.altonrunners.co.uk/club-events/alton-ten/alton-ten-entry-forms/

HRRL RACE 8 : SALISBURY 10 8/04/2018 *MENS ENTRY AVAILABLE

The Southampton men have lost any opportunity to retain the Hampshire Road Race League this season so the focus will be on performing well at the remaining fixtures.
At Salisbury running heavyweights Max Costley and Dave Coak will be lining up together with four slower teammates . As it is likely that the fastest the quickest of the four will run is around 65 an entry is available for somebody who will run at least 63 or quicker to help with the team situation*
Please contact bullseyejoh@gmail.com to engineer the transfer and sort out the payment if interested . If there are no takers by the end of February I will pass on the entry to another club. However before I do this I will first contact Sarah K to see if any Southampton ladies would like to take the entry regardless of speed.
