HRRL RACE 1 : SOLENT HALF
1st Man Stuart Hollloway (Salisbury) 1.13.41
1st Lady Sarah Winstone (Lordshill) 1.27.07
191 Keith Hollis V40 1.45.42
246 Paul Harvey V60 1.52.20
The Solent Half as always organised by ball of energy Mick Anglim took place during a warm morning that inevitably took its toll on the runners particularly in the final stretch along the famous slow incline.
Stuart Holloway dethroned previous years winner Julian Manning whilst in the closer ladies race Sarah Winstone finished less than 30 seconds ahead of Emma Montiel (Portsmouth).
Unfortunately there was a negligible Southampton presence with only Paul Harvey and Keith Hollis in attendance Keith using the race as a warm up for the Abingdon Marathon in October.
Anybody wondering about the whereabouts of Richard Waldron who features in the vast majority of the HRRL Races (winner of the series 2016/17) , he finished 4th at the Ealing Half in 70.14 behind a former Rod Squad member Alex Milne (69.23).
With some higher profile HRRL races coming up we need to start fielding some strong teams particularly in the mens in order to win.
