RR10 Hursley, final results

Thank you all for turning out and helping organise the Hursley RR10 yesterday. Particular thanks to Catherine Timson and Chris Setters. Everyone else was also brilliant and just seemed to know what to do. Set up was a hot job but we were grateful for the tree cover. Malcolm Price (RR10 chairman and 23 years involvement, who will be moving away from chair) and Alan Tulip got an extra special mention at the beginning from Rob over the megaphone. 2 runners were enjoying their 21st birthday, one of them, Rebecca Lord, from Stubbington won the ladies race and the ladies' overall title! 198 ladies and 227 men ran and the funnel ran like clockwork, thanks to the Harvey family, Alan Coveney and John Fuller.
Cakes were a delight, thank you to all who brought. Amazing that some people could not be with us but sent cakes anyway!
At the end of the season, our men's team has finished 3rd overall and our ladies' 4th so big Congratulations and roll on next season. An extra congratulations to Graham Bungay who won the men's V50 and Martyn West who won the men's V60 category.

In the meantime we can start looking forward to the CC6 season which begins on Sunday 18th September, 9.30am at Fleming Park.

RR10 Itchen Valley Results

Thank you to everyone who made it to the race last night at Itchen Valley. We had a great turn out from the men, sadly not so great from the ladies but a special thanks to those who did make it as your presence really made a difference. It was also great to welcome along several RR10 newbies, please come back next year!

Well done to Susy Perry who finished in 10th place and along with myself and Louise Snook made up the ladies A team.

The men put in a great showing with Tom Oliver taking 3rd place and the other A team members consisting of Pete Sansome (13th), James Moore (16th), Joe Chick (20th) and Graham Bungay (23rd). The men’s team is now in 3rd place in the league and the ladies in 5th.

Well done to Martyn West who is now confirmed as the V60 category winner. Full WADAC results are below and on the RR10 website.

In two weeks time on the 17th it is the race we host at IBM Hursley so please do come along and help marshal if you can as well as bringing cakes. Naturally we’ll be refreshing ourselves with a pub stop afterwards.

Race 10, RR10, 3rd August, Itchen Valley C.P

This Wednesday is the last RR10 that we can run in this season at the earlier time of 7.15pm.

Please run it if you can. Every place matters. Both the ladies team and the men's team are in 4th position. Would be awesome if we could jump a place.

I am unable to be at this one so the lovely Catherine Timson (last years manager) is going to be at the race and score keeping on my behalf, thanks Catherine.

Please also put August 17th in your diaries for our RR10 that we host at Hursley IBM, we need as much help as possible and delicious cakes for all please.

Thanks and have a great run.

Race 9, RR10 Results

It was a hot and hilly RR10 in the woods last night at Janesmoor Pond. There was a bit of sticky mud but a mainly dry course. Well done to all runners. Romsey and Wessex RR did a great job with lots of encouraging marshals, geeing us on. It was fab to have Simon Williamson join us and run his first RR10, finishing 51st, hope to see you at many more Simon.
The men's team finished a brilliant 2nd and comprised of Tom Oliver (4th), Tom Craggs (5th), James Moore (15th), Pete Sansome (19th) and Joe Chick (20th) which took the men overall up a position to 4th.
The ladies team also finished 2nd and comprised of Sam Parkinson (10th), Susy Perry (12th) and Emma Carter (15th), the ladies also are at overall position of 4th. Full results available on RR10 website.
So it is all still to play for. Next and last race for us is Race 10 at Itchen Valley Country Park with an earlier start of 7.15 on Wednesday 3rd August.
A lot of people will be on holiday and unable to run the next race so if you are around and don't usually do the RR10's please turn up and represent your club. It would be sad to see us lose our positions in the league standings. Go Team WADAC.
