First RR10 of the Season – 23 April

The first RR10 race of the season is in just over two weeks time on Wednesday 23rd April starting at 7pm at Royal Victoria Country Park in Netley (SO31 5GA – follow the signposts not your sat nav for the very last bit or you may end up in a random patch of forest!).

The race will be approximately 4.5 miles long and is on footpaths within the park, with a small section along the beach.

Parking is free of charge and in the top car park, please car share where possible. The traffic off the motorway to get to this one is usually bad so please allow as much time as possible.

In case you don’t know - the RR10 league is a series of off-road races held between Hampshire running clubs during the summer. Full details are on the RR10 website here. The races are all 4-5 miles long and in scenic locations such as country parks and the New Forest. They are all free to enter, just come along wearing your club vest (contact Alton Sports if you need to get a vest). They attract a wide mix of abilities so no one needs to worry about being last. Newcomers are extremely welcome so do come along and give it a try.

If you need a lift there please email: rr10manager@wadac.org.uk

Hope to see lots of you at the first race. They will be a post race pub visit, exact location to be confirmed…

Double success at the CC6

Just to let you know following last Sunday's race  we have won the Ladies Team Trophy for the CC6 league this year and we also won the Combined Ladies and Mens Teams Trophy too.  The men came a creditable third overall, which is one of our best performances too.  So many thanks to everyone who competed in the league this winter.  You did great.  This is a first for the club as we have never won a team trophy in this competition.  

Pictures of the last race at Wilverley are now available http://hammy8241.smugmug.com/CC6/CC6-2013-14/CC6-No5-wiverley-9214/i-X6P9dfh

See you next season.

CC6 Sunday 2nd March - Wilverley

Just to you remind you that the last CC6 race is this Sunday  (30 Feb), see directions to the race car park.  Start is at 9.30am.  We have a real chance of winning the ladies team if we put in a good performance, and the men could equal their best placing with a second!  So a good turnout of all abilities is really appreciated, would be great, to celebrate or not, our Supa Sunday!

English National Cross Country Championships Results

A fantastic, mostly bone dry course except a nasty boggy section, faced the WADAC XC runners in Nottingham. Best result of the day came from Stuart McCallum 16th in the junior men’s race. Andy Greenleaf was first WADAC home in the seniors men’s race finishing 200th out of over 1600 finishers. WADAC team of the day goes to the senior women (Lucy Elliott, Michaela McCallum, Jen McLachlan and Karen Hazlitt) who finished 10th out of 83 complete teams, all within the top fifth of the field.

Well done to everyone who ran!

The final event in the Hampshire League took place at Salisbury on Saturday 8th February and included WADAC XC Championships.

The course was surprisingly dry. For the senior races the rain storms held off but there were still very strong winds to contend with.

The senior men’s race had a good turn out from WADAC and Gavin Smith again led them home in 2nd place, backed up by Stuart McCallum 5th, Alan Murchison 6th, Robin Houghton 18th, Ian Debnam 38th.

A special mention for those making the 10 ten for their best 4 races:

Stuart McCallum 9th senior and 3rd U20

Alan Murchison 6th senior and 1st V40

Franklyn Young 1st V50

Ed Gurney 9th Vet

Ben Healey 9th U20

 

In the womens race WADAC were fighting with Southampton for 2nd place overall behind the dominating force of Aldershot but were comfortably winning the vets.

Lucy Elliott led WADAC home in 6th and 1st vet with Jen McLachlan 10th, Michaela McCallum 14th finishing 3rd behind Southampton and again 1st vets team.

And those making the top 10 overall:

Jen McLachlan 5th
