At the halfway stage in the league Southampton are 9/10 in Division One (Men) and the Ladies are rooted to the bottom of their division. Hopefully things will improve second half or we might be ‘celebrating’ relegations season end.

HRRL : FORTHCOMING RACES

The next three races in the Hampshire Road Race League are extremely popular.
GOSPORT Half Marathon 18 November 2018
VICTORY 5 2 December 2018
STUBBINGTON 10K 13 January 2019

All three races will top out well in advance. For example 443/800 places were filled for the Victory 5 24/09/2018. There is no point in talking about doing them then bleating about it when you don’t get in ENTER NOW. The maximum numbers of runners allowed at an event is set by the organising clubs negotiation with the local councils .

HRRL 2017/18 Southampton internal Age Graded Competition winners annouced.

The male and female winners of the competition for this year are Richard Waldron (ave: 81.10) and Jen Elkins (ave: 86.08).

Training at University Grounds Wide Lane

Calling all road runners.Many members may be unaware that there are training facilities available at the University grounds Wide Lane opposite Southampton Parkway station.The group meets on Tuesdays usually to run various sessions on the grass playing fields and on Thursdays for a road run both at 6.30PM . The sessions can be found on the web site under Training and are updated monthly. Wide Lane offers excellent  changing and showers and caters for predominately road runners  who can run at 6 to 8 minute miles although there is some latitude. Without wishing to offend my colleagues the average age is somewhat higher than in other training groups and on a Tuesday there is the option of re hydrating at the Cricketers Arms. Everyone is really welcome so why not give it a try.
