1st Man Dan Baker (Southampton Athletic Club) 1.14.57
1st Woman Tasmin Simmonds (Winchester) 1.22.14 *18
76 Jon Ward V45 1.31.51
The Solent Half took place on a very wet morning , the downpour commencing not long before the race start. Dan Baker was not tempted to keep with the early race leader taking six miles to catch him , overtake then inexorably move away for a comfortable race win. Jon Ward was a tad disappointed with his time however bearing in mind the conditions it was a solid performance.
The Southampton men may not be supporting the Leagues races in numbers but they are supporting the Division 1 table propping up the rest of the teams being rooted to the bottom whilst the ladies are 9th out of ten teams in Division 2 of their respective League.
Please note that three of the next four races in the HRRL are full (Hayling 10 3rd November , Gosport Half 17th November & Stubbington January 2020 ) , however at present the Victory 5 is still open for entries but you’d better be quick….
