The Lordshill 10k took place fortunately on the day after the hottest day of the year so far , still warm but with a breeze.
Unfortunately Southamptons two quickest men appearing on the entry list both pulled out with Will Bryan citing injury the fate of Richard Waldron is unknown.
Southampton men were safe from the drop whatever the result however the reverse was true for the ladies who have found themselves a year after the incredible achievement of taking the Division 1 crown of having to suffer the embarrassment of dropping into Division 2 for the 2019/20 season after this years dismal attendance at races rather than performances.
When a mere four athletes are needed to constitute a mens team and three for the ladies Southampton have no excuse for not fielding complete teams at each of the HRRL events particularly as one of the primary objectives of the league is to support the running clubs of Hampshire . Southamptons own race is very well supported by the participating clubs so it is only fair that we should do likewise.
Hopefully next year there will be a resurgence of interest……..
See you next season!
