RR10 Results from Race 1

Thank you to all who took part in last night's RR10 at Netley. It was a warm and sunny evening and 27 WADAC runners turned out to enjoy the scenery and off-road running, woodland and waterside, all in one night!

Well done to all runners, Graham Bungay was first WADAC man home (16th), then Joe Chick (22nd), Andrew King (35th), Tom Watson (52nd) and Martyn West (55th), who made up our A Team and came 7th overall.

I was the first WADAC lady home (9th), then Caroline Carr (15th) and Patricia Burns (21st) who made up our A Team and came 4th overall. Full results available on the RR10 website.

Great to have Steve Oliver with us, fresh from his Brighton glory and still came in at a cracking 66th position!

Please come and join us on Wednesday 4th May at Stoney Cross, for the 2nd race of the season.


RR10 is this Wednesday - Royal Victoria Country Park

This Wednesday (20th April) is the first race in this years RR10 series at the Royal Victoria Country Park in Netley. 

Start time is 7pm prompt and the traffic can be heavy, so please allow plenty of time to get there. Car parking will be in the top field as usual.

Postcode for sat navs is SO31 5GA but follow the road round to the main signposted entrance on the coast as the postcode tends to lead you into the forest. Full details can be found on the RR10 website,

The RR10 league is a spring/summer series of 11 cross country races organised by Hampshire running clubs. They are held on Wednesday evenings at various locations. Entry is free! You just need to wear your club vest.

Last year Winchester ladies finished 4th and Winchester men finished 6th in the league.

The more black and gold vests that run, the greater chance we have to improve on last year's positions. All welcome.

If you have not done RR10 before they are a friendly, informal introduction to cross country racing and also a brilliant mid week sharpener.

Lift shares can be arranged.


See you there!


Future of CC6 league

If you have participated in or might run in a future CC6 league race could you please spend a couple of minutes completing this short survey about a new format for the CC6 league before the end of April.
The CC6 league is a winter based series of 7 cross country races held roughly once a month in the winter on a Sunday morning (very much the winter equivalent of the summer RR10 series of races) which virtually all the running clubs around Southampton participate in. (ranges from Stubbington in the east, winchester to the north and new forest to the west), due to increasing popularity and more clubs wishing to join the league, the committee (which includes myself as the Winchester rep) is looking at ways of safely managing the increase in runners, your feedback will help us.



RR10 League dates for 2016

The nights are getting light which means it's nearly RR10 season :-)

See below and on the RR10 website for a full list of dates and venues. This year for the first time to reduce numbers there will be 11 races with clubs each dropping out of one. Note race number 4 at Blackfield is one we cannot run, along with race 11 which we organise. This means that a runner's best 6 races will count towards their league position.

Also this year we have a new RR10 manager - Emma Carter has kindly agreed to take over the reins. Chris Setters and I will be taking a back seat although I'm definitely still hoping to run a lot of the races. A big thank you to Emma.

For those who don't know, the RR10s are an informal off-road running league between south-west Hampshire running clubs. Races are on a Wednesday evening and are between 4 and 5 miles long. Courses are all off-road in country parks or the New Forest, running on a mixture of grass and forest tracks. Mud, fallen trees and sometimes roaming wildlife are all fairly standard features.

They're suitable for all standards of runner, there is a huge mix of abilities. They're free to enter, just wear your club vest and there's often free cake at the end. So turn up and give it a go. The first race is on Wednesday 20th April.
